While chatting to the fine folks from Good Comics at Leamington this weekend they told us some very exciting news about their next book, Human Garbage, which is set to be a collection of stories from the awesome Josh Hicks, creator of the brilliantly bonkers Glorious Wrestling Alliance. They gave us a sneak preview of the cover for Human Garbage at the convention, but here are some more amazing pages for you to check out!
Here’s a description of what we can look forward to courtesy of the Good Comics press release…
Human Garbage collects seven of Josh Hicks’ stories, covering work previously self-published and strips penned for O Life and Dirty Rotten Comics, with many strips re-coloured and re-packaged exculsively for the collection along with brand new strips. Josh has a gift for storytelling and wry humour in both ction and non- ction, which is on display throughout this collection. Along with painfully honest observations in the stories Body Conscious and Club, there are also satirical, witty magical realist strips Waste and Wake Up, and a pulpy detective throwback story, The Case of the Black Cat. This collection is a landmark work from a major new voice in British comics.
Human Garbage will debut at ELCAF on 17th June at Josh’s table, and will be available to pre-order from the Good Comics online store from 1st May. You can nd out more about Josh’s comics, including the amazing Glorious Wrestling Alliance, at joshhicks.co.uk/comics.
