Terrible Means is the follow up to Ismyre, one of our favourite Avery Hill books of 2017 from B. Mure. While it is more of a prequel/parallel tale than a direct sequel it does a fantastic job of build more depth and layers into the curious and quirky mythology of this wonderfully weird watercolour world.

Wolf is our first time reading the work of the incredible Rachael Ball, who is best known for creating The Inflatable Woman. Despite the overtly lupin name, it is actually a nostalgic look back at a childhood summer from a non-specific time in the 1970s and mixes what feels like very personal reflection on grief and loss with the tale of a bunch of kids creating a go kart and hiding from a creepy neighbour.

Katriona Chapman’s Katzine has been a fixture of the UK small press scene for the last few years, but for her debut graphic novel Follow Me In, she has expanded her short but sweet travelogues into something much more epic. It’s like the difference between a short mini break and a full on gap year!

The Beast of Wolfe's Bay creator Erik EvensenBack in the 1990s we were all believers in the things that went bump in the night thanks to shows like the X-Files, but these days everyone is much more sceptical. Well writer/artist Erik Evensen is set to change all that with his brilliant new graphic novel The Beast of Wolfe’s Bay released this week via ComiXology. This self-published supernatural story sees struggling palaeoanthropologist Brian and folklorist Winifred investigate mysterious disappearances in the small town of Wolfe’s Bay that may or may not be connected to a mysterious gorilla like figure seen at the scene of the crime. Winifired’s sheriff father is convinced it’s got a supernatural subtext, but who or what is really behind it all? Packed full of twists, turns and terror, but with a brilliant light tone that’s reminiscent of Scooby Doo, The Beast of Wolf’es Bay is a fantastic read, and so, like Mulder and Scully, we set out to find more about this small town’s secrets and contacted Erik hoping to find out the truth behind this mysterious beast.
