TechnoFreak

Welcome to London 3026, the grimmest of futures. Meet Jon Sherlock, the sole survivor of bizarre experiments which sent others quite insane. Cybernetic implants have altered Jon's consciousness and gift him with the ability to hack into any electronic systems, but at a cost; he can feel the edges of his humanity collapsing. In an uncaring world the TechnoFreak numbs his pain with alcohol and cancer sticks, barely holding on to his sanity.
TechnoFreak is a combination of the best sci-fi and film noir. It's Blade Runner on acid, mixed with outrageous laugh-out-loud humour. This is one comic sensation not to be missed. Don't wait for the movie. Read the comic.

ABOUT THE CREATORS:

He's been a graphic designer for Trident Comics, drawn/digitally painted covers and illustrated some Future Shocks for 2000AD, provided cover art for Antarctic Press and IDW in the U.S., and coloured Spectacular Spider-Man and a variety of other strips for Panini UK's Marvel Heroes comic.

Most recently, he's been a regular colourist on Sinister Dexter and Judge Dredd for 2000AD. John likes custard and Bakewell tarts and beetroot and jacket potatoes, amongst other things.

BARRY MAY has written some things over the years, including the aforementioned Spider-Man / X-Men team-up (Spectacular Spider-Man 134 - 136) with John. He also worked with John to create the much-loved books 'Tiger J. Jackson and The School for Weird Kids,' and 'Kiri, the Fairy Barmaid.' In his spare time, he likes to make up words and use them invulcerously, though obviously not at weekends or in mixed company.

Neon Gutter Cat

“Neon Gutter Cat” is a guided visual dream diary tour of the human subconscious, where the dreams attempt to relate and evaluate the depression and loneliness that we all face as members of humanity in a sometimes cold and cruel world.

Demitri Vassiliadis is an illustrator and Graphic Novelist from London, currently based in Tokyo, Japan. He draws inspiration from the unique urban landscapes, and the legions of people found between our industrial society. In his work characters in states of crisis inhabit dark, dreamlike worlds in which the line between the synthetic and natural is blurred beyond distinction. The environments are often characters in themselves, and themes of depression and loneliness are explored through horrific and surreal like imagery.

GHOST CITY COMIC FINALIST - BEST SINGLE ISSUE

Jed McPherson is a comic writer. He's mostly known for Deadbeat: a neo noir thriller about a young woman reuniting with her deadbeat dad through armed robbery. He's also the mind behind Jacob - a serial killer webcomic which he assures us is 100% not autobiographical. But he doesn't just write crime comics he's also worked on The Show - a deranged reality-tv satire kind of like the Truman Show as envisaged by Hunter S. Thompson.

Heavy Manners

A collection of thought provoking short graphic stories on the destruction caused by the world's most dangerous animals. Humans.

"Easily transferable to an audience outside of comics. This comic could easily find itself in any critical literature course in a university. Stevil criticizes and uses his voice and pen to chart a commentary on us. This is what cartoonists were supposed to do" (Praise for the previous comic on www.comicbookbin.com)

Comic Books can't change the world. But comic book readers can.

Stevil's work is unashamedly political. He sees his art as a means of communication of information. Comics legend Jack Kirby once said "comics is journalism". But you won't find any superheroes here.

His artwork is more likely to be influenced by Woody Guthrie, Joe Strummer or Bruce Springsteen than other painters or illustrators. Though he loves Picasso and Jasper Johns. He used to love David Hockney until he disgracefully got into bed with The S*n.

He lives and works on a 70 year old wooden boat on the Thames.

Hard Core Pawn

A pawnographic collection of thought provoking short stories of racism, gender politics, capitalism, alcoholism, refugees, terrorism, democracy and, above all, humanity, told not through human characters but instead chess pieces.

"Hard-hitting and occasionally outrageously amusing...it just goes perfectly to show that politics and farce go hand-in-hand, but we all knew that right?" PAGE45.COM

Daydreaming

Daydreaming is an anthology of works from staff member Vittorio , containing short comics, illustrations, concept arts, manga pages and everything he's up to.
