Hello!

The big news is the change in our standing order service, which takes effect from this week! In case you missed it, we'll no longer be bagging standing order comics individually by default, in order to reduce our plastic waste. You can still have your comics bagged free of charge, but you need to opt in by dropping us an email or letting us know in person. Read the blurb above for all the details, and if you want things bagged from this week, let us know ASAP!

Hello!

We've got a release so big this week that we're just going to put it right at the start!

LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN: THE TEMPEST #1 - SIGNED BY KEVIN O'NEILL
Writer:
Alan Moore
Artist: Kevin O'Neill
Publisher: Knockabout

It's the grand finale as Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill begin the capstone to their 20 year journey with the League, and also to their comics careers. Yep, both men are retiring from comics after this, so enjoy it while you can. It's a breakneck adventure across time and space, culminating in the apocalyptic era of 2996 in the domed city of "We". Make sure you study up on the previous volumes, because this one is throwing it all in! And as a special bonus, all our copies are signed by Kevin O'Neill, so be sure to get in quick for a copy, or you can order right now via our webstore. If you've got LOEG on your standing order, rest assured a signed copy will automatically be winging its way to you.
