Psycho Gran versus... Round 2! - Cover SNIP

Sneak Peek: The new “Psycho Gran Versus…”, from David Leach, poor Howard!

Psycho Gran versus... Round 2! - CoverThis weekend at London Film and Comic Con, artist and writer David Leach will unleash a new collection of Psycho Gran Versus on an unsuspecting world… and it is very, very silly but well worth your hard-earned pounds.

Just like last time out, back in 2016, It’s another no-holds-barred, free-for-all bust up published by Dead Universe Publishing, between Psycho and a whole slew of opponents from Antman and The Wasp to Galactus, and Charlie Brown and Lucy to 2001: A Space Odyssey‘s Monolith.

Dedicated to David’s sister who sadly died back in April, the comic is a 36 pager with a guest art section featuring the work of Doug Braithwaite, Alex Saviuk, Tom Mandrake, Jamie Smart, Bambos, Chris Browne and Paul McCaffrey.

Wall to wall with senior citizen-inspired violence and mayhem, you can buy a copy direct from David at London Film and Comic Con (and at his other appearances in 2018 – follow him on Twitter @davidleach2000 for details).
