The first collection of stories culled from the pages of British indie press title The Girly Comic, has just been published, featuring the talents of British comic industry professionals such as John Stokes, Mike Collins and Simon Fraser, veteran indy creators such as Lee “Inner City Pagan” Kennedy, Terry “Sleaze Castle” Wiley and Jeremy Dennis, alongside exciting new talents from the British Small Press scene and beyond.
The Girly Comic features self-contained comic strips across all genres with female protagonists, from the autobiographical tales of Lee Kennedy to the Two Fat Ladies meets Ghostbusters of Oddcases by Alistair Pulling and Bevis Musson; from Terry Wiley’s Surreal School Stories to Martin Millar’s Good Fairies of New York with Simon Fraser.
The title, published by Factor Fiction (who are also publishers of webcomic Violent!) has already earned high praise with the Comic Creators Guild describing it as “An absolute gem of a publication” and Savantmag describing the comic as “One of the undisputed stars of the small press”.
“Make them rich, and hopefully they’ll keep on doing what they do for a long, long time!” says Mike Carey in his introduction.
• The 280-page The Girly Comic Book 1, which will be officially launched at the Thought Bubble conventiion in Leeds on 15th November, is available in hardback priced 15 from Factor Fiction. For more information, visit our website: www.factorfictionpress.co.uk.
