pcgblognewThe fine folk from the PCG have sent us another round-up of the best mainstream digital comics, including A.D..: After Death Book One from Scott Snyder and Jeff Lemire, who also supplies us a story for Old Man Logan.

pull-list-04The latest issue of our indie comics magazine The Pull List #4 is now available from our Gumroad store for the bargain price of £0.99! Our cover is supplied by the super talented Chris Imber and Chris Jenkins from Reckless Hero who represent a new generation of exciting UK indie publishers and they talk exclusively about their epic series the Last Sheriff.

space-captain-1Space Captain is one of those rare things in indie comics – a title that seems to appear perfectly realized from the very beginning and gets better and better with every issue. There’s no muddled debut full of extraneous exposition or awkward character development as the writer and artist attempts to find their voice. Instead, like its hero, it appears from the ice fully rounded, ready for action and sporting an excellent moustache!

porcelain-ivory-towerOne of our most anticipated books of 2017, is set to be the follow up to 2015’s outstanding Porcelain: Bone China from Improper Books. Set to be released next summer, Benjamin Read and Chris Wildgoose’s Porcelain: Ivory Tower will pick up the story of Lady 10 years after the events of Bone China and will see Lady become a Mother. But if you can’t wait until next year to see what’s in store, you can check out a fantastic 12 page preview which you can find here.

npc_teaA popular mainstay on the small press circuit for the last couple of years, Sarah Millman is known for the colourful, upbeat and fun comic A Heart of Time. Now, ‘Milmo’ has released her new book, NPC Tea, which focuses on a modern day take of Men, Elves and Orcs as one girl seeks out some powerful spirits. Will this comic become as popular as Millman’s previous title or will it not be everyone’s cup of tea?
