From the opening blood soaked page which sees hit woman Lon getting life advice from her most recent victim (who has a particularly large bullet hole in his head), then you know you are in for a bloody, violent and gritty crime tale with Beautiful Canvas, courtesy of the team behind Deer Editor and Chum and it definitely doesn’t disappoint!.

We’ve been looking forward to this one ever since we discovered the wacky world of the Etherington Brothers back at the end of last year, and the early images of this book was one of the main reason we picked them to be a part of our Indie Showcase Special of The Pull List. Created by the mysterious alter ego of Lorenzeo Etherington, it’s filled with mix of trademark, high energy Etherington artwork and quirky characters, but rendered with a halftone-tastic sheen and a generous dose of retro styling to create a book that looks effortlessly cool and totally unique – it even comes with its own 3D section and 3D glasses! So get behind this brilliant book and make sure it is added to your collection soon by pledging for it here. And watch the pledge video below!

This new offering from Avery Hill is a collection of three stories from American illustrator and artist, George Wylesole and is one of those books which is hard to sum up and eloquently describe, as the constituent elements are so weird and bizarre that describing them in isolation doesn’t really do them justice. However when they’re combined into this 90+ page volume, Ghosts Etc. becomes another tour de force from one of the UK scene’s most exciting publishers.

Take one rotten rival to Lady Flintlock’s highway shenanigans, one ship full of hungry and putrid and survey pirates and an ill thought our robbery and you have all the ingredients to Steve Tanner an friends’ newest offering, Flintlock No.2 from Time Bomb Comics, all sitting behind an Ian Kennedy cover no less.

Having caught up with AP2HYC editor David Moloksky at last month’s Leamington Comic Con, we were excited to discover that the guys from A Place To Hang Your Cape have launched an official podcast – PodCapers! – which means we have a chance to discover even more great comics and geeky chat from this awesome website.

Leamington Comic Con Logo 2015For our second stint behind a convention table we were lucky enough to get a spot at Leamington Comic Con 2017. We’d been to the previous two as a punter and loved the passion that Dan and the team had put into the event, so we knew it would be another really enjoyable day with the emphasis on comics not all that other nonsense.

While chatting to the fine folks from Good Comics at Leamington this weekend they told us some very exciting news about their next book, Human Garbage, which is set to be a collection of stories from the awesome Josh Hicks, creator of the brilliantly bonkers Glorious Wrestling Alliance. They gave us a sneak preview of the cover for Human Garbage at the convention, but here are some more amazing pages for you to check out!

It’s been another bumper month for Kickstarters, and it wouldn’t be a crowd-funding extravaganza without the Aussie King of Kickstarter Ryan K Lindsay (Chum, Deer Editor and EIR). Instead of being another gritty crime drama, Ink Island is an all ages adventure starring his own kids that comes complete with a teaching pack for families and teachers.  So we decided to catch up with Ryan to find out the secrets of a good Kickstarter, why he’s aiming it at kids, as well as the mysteries of Ink Island.
