Ace indie title “Raygun Roads” gets second printing

The latest news from the interground has it that the entirety of the fantastic Raygun Roads webcomic from Owne Johnson, Indio and Andy Bloor, which we’ve enthused about here before, will crackle live today – 2nd April.

From today it is possible to overdose on punk and comics in one glorious hit of skanky fuzz! Breathe in the fumes!

Not only that, but the Kittelbach Pirates have announced a live performance for one night only to celebrate the second printing featuring an all-new cover (above) by Indio and Andy Bloor of the sold-out, award-winning, nausea-inducing indie darling that had The Beat say: “Read this comic and re-charge your soul … THIS IS WHAT COMICS ARE FOR!”

The Lazarus Pit tour date is part of the CULT art exhibition after-party taking place at Orbital Comics London on Easter Saturday 19th April.

“We expect accountants, hipsters, Raygun Roadies, vikings, witches, and the ghost of Jim Morrison”, the team tell us. “Be there to hear the Kittelbach Pirates tear it up and get your hands on the comic!”

For those format junkies amongst you, the second print will be produced at standard US comic size on 90gsm Book Wove. Yes, the talented team are going the full Kirby on this sucker.

Perversely (and because these creators are cruel mother truckers) these second print copies are even more limited than the first print run. If you’ve never experienced Raygun Roads before now is the time. Even if you bought it already, give them money again!
