At Last the Light is a gothic tale set in the nineteenth century, a tale of ghosts, fog and abandoned lighthouses. Will it sweep you up to Wuthering Heights or send you plummeting down as dramatically as The Fall of the House of Usher? Let’s find out.
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.

Halloween may still be a few months away but when it comes to comics, Horror can be anytime as James Blundell checks out a trio of horror based anthology issues including: London Horror Comic, Torments and Fables of Fear.

Fresh off the heels of the fantastic Milford Green Saga collected edition, Samuel George London and Mikael Hankonen are back together with Access Denied. Set in a time where Artificial intelligence has colonised Mars, this comic tells the story of two very different people finding love despite their respective people’s animosity. But will it bring readers head over heels?
