With the London Super Comic Convention less than six weeks away, the hype is really starting to build. Last year marked the inaugural appearance of the LSCC and it was a great show. Building on that success means bringing in the big boys. One of the big names attending the con is UK publisher Markosia. They had a huge presence at last year’s event and this year they plan to not only build on that success but completely overshadow it by offering some superb exclusives and mouth-watering deals.
First off, they are launching two brand new books making their UK debut for the event. The first is a Limited Edition LSCC Exclusive Hardcover of Project Luna: 1947 by Martin Hayes and Jim Boswell. The second book is a Limited Edition LSCC Exclusive Edition of Misery City by K.I. Zachopoulos and Vassilis Gogtzilas. Both books are available at the Markosia stand. But wait, that’s not all. If you buy either of these two titles, you will get another complete graphic novel for absolutely FREE. You will get to choose from eight carefully selected titles. All attendees of the show will be given a leaflet at the convention which will have details about this fantastic offer and which books are on offer.
Another noteworthy mention is that the sequel to Hero 9 to 5 will be seen over at the Orang Utan Comics booth. The book is a 48 page, full color, limited edition. This book includes the first half of Hero: 9 to 5 – Quietus, the follow-up to 2010’s Hero: 9 to 5 by Ian Sharman, David Gray and Yel Zamor. The book will also include an exclusive four page Thunder Woman story that will not be available anywhere else.
While there will also be plenty of other great titles to buy at the Markosia stand, there are three specific titles that will also be making their UK debut and that you should look out for. – Switched, The Silver Bullet and Sleaze Castle: The Director’s Cut Volume #0 (at Terry Wiley’s table).
