Pass me a chain gun, Lou Scannon is back

Lou Scannon by Huw-J

The wait is over – Lou Scannon #6: Loose Cannons is now available from!

Produced by Eagle Award finalists Dan Harris,  Kris Carter and Jim Bampfield, with letters by HdE, issue 6 comes with a full colour wraparound cover by ‘Garth’ artist Huw-J.
