Bursting forth from the pages of the Phoenix, courtesy of the frenetic imaginations of the Etherington Brothers comes this second collection of tales starring a young boy who accidentally dies eating oxtail soup and must navigate a mysterious afterworld in order to try and get home. But should the Etherington’s unconventional hero remain long gone?

We’ve finally reached the end of our True Believers reading list and there are a couple of crackers on it including: a sampler of a dark folk-horror comic called Heretics; a quirky romance that starts on a late night platform in Last Train Home; some zany all-ages action in the Etherington Brothers Monkey Nuts; and some pyromanic fun in Rachael Smith’s I Am Fire.

For our third look at this past weekend’s True Believers Comic Festival, we are going to take a glimpse at what life was like behind the table, as editor Alex Thomas makes his convention debut with Pipedream Comics and an Indie Shocase special edition of The Pull List!

This weekend’s True Believers Comic Festival saw three members of the Pipedream Comics team in attendance, each with their own unique take on the day. Following hot on the footsteps of James Blundell’s thoughts from yesterday, our other intrepid reporter Olly MacNamee fills us in on his day at the races as he gets the comic con season underway at True Believers Comic Festival 2017.
