What is Reads?

A comics anthology that celebrates long-form narrative storytelling.

The main strips are:

Hilary Harper, an investigator of magical happenings (basically James Bond played by John Pertwee).

Metroland, a time-travelling whodunit with added rock ’n’ roll.

Bad Times Ahead, a mystery, inside an enigma, inside the mind of a very strange man.

Added to that, we have the stunning comics of Tim Bird as he muses on London and life, ghost stories from M J Wallace and additional contributions from new and old kids on the UK comic scene block such as Paul Rainey, Luke Halsall and Clare Stewart.

AND if that wasn’t enough we’re just starting to include articles on the technical aspects of comics production, UK Small Press landmarks and the history of comics!!!

Basically, it’s brilliant.


Why Should We Pick This Up?

Because we’re around for the long-stretch.  Reads will become a mainstay of the UK comics scene and a go to for intriguing reads and great new talent.  You can say you were there at the beginning.
