Alice in Sunderland
RRP £18.99 Hardback.
Gnash special offer price £17.00
Recently nominated for an award this Bryan Talbot is, at 55, almost a grand old man of British comics. The Adventures of Luther Arkwright was arguably the UK’s first graphic novel, and his artwork on “Nemesis the Warlock” helped to make 2000AD magazine indispensable. Alice in Sunderland is a gloriously ambitious fusion of myth, history and autobiography in every imaginable visual style.
Tetris: The games people Play
Gnash special offer price £11.70
Who will own the game of the century?
Alexey Pajitnov had big ideas about games. In 1984, he created Tetris in his spare time while developing software for the Soviet government.
Once Tetris emerged from behind the Iron Curtain, it was an instant hit. A bidding war was sparked.
This is the true story of the world’s most popular video game.
“Reborn” Sci-fi comic
Written by Mark Millar
Art by Greg Capullo
This comic is still top of our list not least because of the amazing variant cover by Jock on issue 1, (Gnash has some signed copies available). The story grabs you from the first page, and I am now counting days until issue 2 is out. I won’t give you any spoilers but do pick up the first copy and believe me you will get hooked as well. If not send it back, and we will return your money! I have recently seen some previews of Greg Capullo’s art work in issue 3 and it looks stunning. So can only imagine that the excitement around this series will build.

Look out for the Jock variant cover coming up on issue 3 out on 14 December
