The Adventures of Simon Pegg Graphic Novel hits your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and UK Android Today!

I’m not that big a fan of autobiographies but I’ve been interested in picking up Simon Pegg’s Nerd Do Well for while now. In the meantime I think as a nice (and cheap at £1.79) taster I think I definitely will be picking up his graphic novel adventures which have been influenced by Nerd Do Well.

All the info on the ebook app (which sounds like it has some nice features) is below you can also head over to the website for more info.

The Adventures of Simon Pegg, an exclusive digital graphic novelisation, inspired by the pages of Simon’s autobiography, Nerd Do Well.

Seamless panel-by-panel viewing with transitions and movement and intuitive navigation controls let you embark on a unique journey through the story.

Marvel as his superhero alter-ego traverses the continents in his customized Pegg Jet. His mission: to prevent the destruction of all life on earth.

A hilarious and brilliantly crafted graphic novel featuring the escapades of Simon Pegg, a ruggedly handsome superhero (with a body a bit like Brad Pitt’s from Fight Club and an almost constant thirst for Coke Zero) and his ever faithful robotic manservant, Canterbury, as they fight to stop the world from exploding. Will they get to Hendon in time to stop evil criminal Lord Black from carrying out his plan to fire his ancient Egyptian laser beam into the sun? Will Simon finally capture the heart of flame haired French cat burglar, The Scarlet Panther? And, perhaps most importantly, will Canterbury manage to provide appropriate refreshments for all visiting guests/informants? There’s only one way to find out…
