Boy’s Club is a story of monsters. These monstrous miscreants are Andy, Brett, Landwolf, and Pepe. We follow them in their day-to-day lives of video games, pizza, and some psychedelic trips. Oh and lots of booze and junk food. Filled with stories about friendship, kiwis, and gaming – this is a stoner classic for the tumblr generation. Though many already know the fan favourite Pepe the Frog, who has been adopted as a mascot for the 4chan community. All we can say is enjoy the trip.

We’re very happy to announce our Bad Company: First Casualties Gosh! Exclusive Bookplate Edition designed by Rufus Dayglo, and signed by Peter Milligan, Rufus Dayglo and Jim McCarthy!

51wy8jyGycL._SX359_BO1,204,203,200_

The new arc in Bad Company started in March, a tribute to co-creator Brett Ewins, who sadly passed away in 2015. Peter Milligan, and Jim McCarthy return in their roles as writer and inker, respectively, joined by Rufus Dayglo on pencils, whose work maintains the dizzying energy of the story.

If that puts more pressure on us to produce a new story that lives up to the Bad Company name so be it. FIRST CASUALTIES is a surprising tale, revealing new truths about Bad Company and their world, and also saying something about our own world. I hope it’s a fitting tribute to a man without whom Bad Company would never have been what it was.“ – Peter Milligan

For our bookplate, Rufus has produced a manic, brutal, black, white & grey ode to Frank Miller‘s classic Wolverine cover, with Kano battling off a group of murderous Krool.

The series originally started as a limited series, but given its unsurprising success, it’s been upgraded to an ongoing, bringing us to a shiny new second volume!

Volume 2 continues Susan, Esther, and Daisy’s navigation of university life, and the double-edged sword of adult independence.

Tokyo Ghost is set in a world that is plugged in – steeped in technological obsession. The year is 2189 in New Los Angeles, with constables Debbie Decay and Led Dent patrolling the brutal streets. The couple are trying to make it through one last job so they can leave the polluted isles of LA for the tech-free haven of Tokyo.

revenger

Charles Forsman’s Revenger follows a  vigilante who travels the country fighting for the weak and exploited in a story that carries the tone of gritty ’80s superhero fare from the cartoonist behind the chilling The End Of The Fucking World (TEOTFW) and Celebrated Summer. Forsman balances an introspective tone, delving into the familiar narrative of a past trauma haunting our hero, with showing off his skills in a series of incredibly laid out fight sequences.

Gosh! Exclusive Bookplate Edition: Giant Days

Giant Days Volume 1 is coming to Gosh, and we have an exclusive bookplate by the incredible John Allison to celebrate the launch!

BOOMBOX_GiantDays_v1_TP

We’ve been fans of John Allison’s work for years, following his wonderful webcomics Bad Machinery and Scary Go Round. John’s earned a large, loyal collection of readers that have followed his work daily for the past 12 years, and John’s latest BOOM! Box series Giant Days takes his charming sense of humour combined with art work by Disney artist Lissa Treiman to create an entertaining, slice-of-life look at three friends who have just left home to go to university. In fact, the series has been such a hit, Boom have recently announced that it will now be ongoing!

‘Susan, Esther, and Daisy started at university three weeks ago and became fast friends. Now, away from home for the first time, all three want to reinvent themselves. But in the face of hand-wringing boys, “personal experimentation,” influenza, mystery-mold, nu-chauvinism, and the willful, unwanted intrusion of “academia,” they may be lucky just to make it to spring alive. Going off to university is always a time of change and growth, but for Esther, Susan, and Daisy, things are about to get a little weird.’
