Although it’s been available online since the spring, Jon Laight’s epic science fiction superhero adventure Away is making it’s comic convention debut at this weekend’s Thought Bubble 2018. So we thought it would be a perfect chance to catch up with it’s creator to find out more about the tricky act of balancing home life and heroism. 

Thanks to titles like Brethren Born and Late Knights, Jon Laight has become a firm fixture of the UK small press comics scene. But for this latest, most ambitious title, Laight has joined up with Markosia Comics and the artistic talents of Grant Richards, Darren Stephens and Rob Jones to produce Away, a sci-fi story about a man who spends his dreams training to be the Earth’s ultimate saviour.
