If you’ve stumbled across our site after seeing our advert in this month’s issue of SFX, then welcome!
Actually, that first line could have better been used to hook you in, or at the very least tell you what the book’s about. Sorry. Let’s get to it.
The London Horror Comic is a print horror-comedy anthology. Yep, you read that right: horror and comedy and print. We’ve had good reviews from people like Garth Ennis, the comedian Stewart Lee and loads of others, so that’s surely a reason to read on?
Now, before I begin the sales patter, I strongly recommend you read the FREE PDF previews we have online (the proof is in the pudding after all, right?). Each print issue contains four or five stories and below are free samples of one from each issue:
Issue 1 – Here’s a story about a vampire with status anxiety. Think: Peep Show.
Issue 2 – A suicidal women’s last ditch bid for romance ends in, well, you’ll see. [This one’s an all silent story.]
Issue 3 – What’s the worst thing that can happen when you visit a hooker? Answers lie within.
Issue 4 – We’ve all been here: a nervous passenger’s journey on the Tube.
Issue 5 – Slacker werewolf and zombie shoot the breeze on dating.
Okay? All done? If you’re reading on, I hope at least one of the stories struck a chord with you.
Each issue contains four or five self-contained stories. That means you don’t need to buy the next issue to find out what happens next.
Of course, if you do want to buy the next issue, don’t let me stop you.
We post anywhere in the world in secure packaging.
Oh, a quick one: we’ve sold out of issues 2 and 3. Don’t worry: you’re not left with half a story if you buy any of the other issues (each issue delivers self-contained done in one stories, remember?).
If you fancy buying them from a proper comic book store you can pick them up in Orbital Comics in London or Gosh! Comics.
Erm, that’s about it.
What’s that? You want more?
Go on then: here’s a link to an unpublished story. I’ll leave you to decide its subtext.
