Hibernia Comics teases upcoming British comic Collection plan, New Comic Archive

Work is continuing on Hibernia Comics new releases, following up on the independent publisher’s terrific The Fleetway Files book.

David McDonald has announced their next release will be another collection, then another Comic Archive.

“I’m also very excited to be working on an interview with a prolific Spanish artist for a future collection,” he teases.

The Fleetway Files was reprinted with a small run and there are now just a few copies of that left. ” David notes.

One of Hibernia’s fastest selling guides to British comics, it’s unlikely the limited exition publication will be reprinted again in the short term, so get it now while you can here.

Hibernia are also still selling a PDF collection of all four of their Comic Archives for only £10.

Here’s David’s favourite ‘find’ that’s featured in The Fleetway Files, the cover to SPACE, a sticker album that was published in Brazil, produced in Italy, and drawn by the amazing Ian Kennedy.

It’s just one of many gems the Hibernia team have brought to light in recent years, making their work well worth keeping an eye on via their Facebook group.
