Hot on the heels of their Kickstarter success, we check out Daughters of Albion #1, the first comic release from new London based comic book studio, Wild River Comics. Created by Trevor Jayakody and Denis Phan, Daughters of Albion tells the story of two different people investigating mysterious, supernatural-related goings-on in near-future London.
The new book from Mahoney’s Rich Carrington is a slice of classic superhero action wrapped up in a glorious ‘what if’ concept and is coming soon to Kickstarter. But does this tale of a hero with finite powers run out of juice before the climactic ending, or does it have enough in the tank to save the day?

This month’s small press spotlight sees us turn our attention to some shadowy contemporary crime in Point Blank, a case of supernatural writers block in Deadliner and a fantastical owl adventurer in Mossvale.
“If the laws of nature cannot prevail here, what chance have the laws of the land?” This introduction to Keith Page’s Strawjack: The Terror or Romney Marsh from novelist and film maker Stephen Walsh sets the tone for this new graphic novel perfectly. It’s a tale of salty sea dogs, scarecrows and magic but should you send your hard-earned doubloons on it?
Last year was a strong year for writer Andrew Clemson, as he managed to release not one, but two issues, of BOTH his ongoing series: Damsel from DISTRESS and Bete Noir. Fresh off a place in our Best of 2021, and glowing reviews of the debut issues, we take a look back at these issues and see if they managed to keep the magic!
Our latest round up of the best small press comics couldn’t be more diverse. From a lighthearted alien adventure in Alien Agency, to a dry humoured ant family in Ant Story and the gothic mystery romance in My Love Does Not Deserve Me, we can’t wait to dive in!
