Debuting earlier this month, the third issue of The Awesome Comics anthology is on sale now from the same team who bring you the Awesome Comics Podcast.
The anthology title continues three distinct stories from the team – “Murder Road” by Vince Hunt (also known for The Red Mask From Mars) and the Sinister Horror Company’s Daniel Marc Chant, the story of a mysterious country road has some supernatural hazards; Soho Red turns from street fighter to robber in “Cockney Kung Fu” by Tony Esmond and Nick Prolix (The Sheep and the Wolves); and Sloane and Lopez’s investigation leads to a muscle bound gym brawl in “Vyper” by Dan Butcher (Vanguard).
The anthology kicked off with a great launch issue, and the team are well known for their independent comics-focused Awesome Comics Podcast, so why not give it a look?
