Reel Love Collected EditionThe new hardcover version of Owen Michael Johnson’s wonderful Reel Love: The Complete Collection really resonated with our inner movie geek, so we caught up with Owen’ ahead of the books release to find out more about what inspired his love of the cinema and how he found the emotional truth of his story!

The latest book to come out of the Unbound publishing platform (joining Ram V’s Grafity’s Wall and Rachael Smith’s Isobel and Blodwen) sees Beast Wagon’s Owen Michael Johnson bring usĀ Reel Love: The Complete Collection, a 3 volume semi-autobiographical tale about growing up as a film fan, collected into a glorious hardcover boxset. But will it be a blockbuster or an arthouse flop?

One of our highlights from the recent Leamington Comic Con, was news of a new book from Wired Up Wrong‘s Rachael Smith called Isabella and Blodwen. As long time fans of her work, stretching back to the early days of House Party, we were super excited and even more intrigued to learn that not only would it be packed full of the beautiful art and pithy wit which we have come to love with her work, but also that she was embracing a new publishing platform, with crowd funding site Unbound. We caught up with Rachael to find out more about the conflicting worlds of ancient witches and contemporary funding platforms! (Which is much more interesting than it sounds!)
