Firebox Ricky Rouse Graphic Novel Competition launched

Firebox Ricky Rouse Competition


What could be more festive than a bizarro graphic novel that’s a little bit like Die Hard, only set in a knock-off Disney theme park? Nothing, that’s what.

This Christmas online retailer Firebox are giving away three hardback copies of the brilliant Ricky Rouse Has a Gun published by SelfMadeHero; each individually signed by the ludicrously-talented Jörg Tittel and John Aggs. These gorgeous hardback editions are the only signed first editions in existence, so they’re like gold dust to anyone who loves this classic graphic novel.

As if that wasn’t enough, every one of them also contains a signed and limited-edition print of the rasping communist mallard, Ronald Ruck.
