Independent publisher Accent UK will be launching issue 2 of their steam-punk comic Stephenson’s Robot at Thought Bubble in Leeds over this coming weekend, 14/15 November 2015, along with the latest issue of their supernatural western series, WesterNoir.
In Stephenson’s Robot, written by Dave West and illustrated by Indio, things move on apace with the robot Kingdom looking to fulfil his destiny at the beginning of the Great War, while the additional back-up strip in this issue features the Carnival Master with artwork by Gary Crutchley. Issue 2 also comes with a new Tarot card edition of The Emperor.
Issue 6 of WesterNoir continues the life and times of Josiah Black and introduces a very significant new character to the series. As well as having the six individual issue available to buy, they will be selling sketch packs of WesterNoir’s “first season”, the first four issues of the series, plus issue 1 of the companion title Tales of WesterNoir for much less than the combined cover prices. Each pack will also include an original sketch from WesterNoir artist and co-creator Gary Crutchley.
In addition to these and their other current titles they have chosen to return to one of their earlier sold out anthologies. Zombies, with front cover artwork by Steve Bissette and back cover artwork by Shane Oakley, sold out of its original printing several years back and proved popular enough for a second anthology to be published that has now also sold-out. Accent UK have decided to reprint that original book stating “we like to have some Zombies on the table.”
Accent UK will be at Thought Bubble in Leeds on the weekend of 14/15 November 2015 where they will be in the New Dock Hall at sales table number 46.
