UK independent comic publisher Moonface Press will launch its new graphic novella Septic Isle with a limited edition of just 100 copies at next month’s Bristol International Comic Expo.
In the 1970s and ’80s, Jacob Marley was MI5’s most revered and feared agent. But he turned his back on Queen and country to pursue a more peaceful existence. Now, 15 years later and with his life collapsing around him, Marley has returned to find that the world of British espionage is more dangerous than ever before.
Ageing, heartbroken and off his game, Marley must now face off against Jerome Quinn. A former MI5 man himself, Quinn leads Odin’s Sword, a neo-Nazi terror organisation that has declared war on Britain’s Muslim community. He’s every bit as ruthless as Marley, only younger, stronger and smarter.
To beat him, Marley will need every shred of courage and cunning at his disposal – and it still might not be enough…
Written by Andy Winter (Hero Killers, Blood Psi), drawn by Mick Trimble (MC2, The Many Worlds Of Jonas Moore), the limited edition of Septic Isle on sale at the Expoboasts a wraparound cover by Declan Shalvey (Hero Killers, Freak Show). Andy and Declan were the creative team on Hero Killers which won last year’s Eagle Award for Best British Black and White Comicbook and Declan is nominated for an Eagle again this year as Favourite Newcomer Artist.
An exclusive limited edition first printing of just 100 copies of the 52-page Septic Isle will be available at the Bristol Expo, priced £3.95. Andy, Declan and Mick will also all be on hand at the Moonface Press table at the Expo to chat about the book and sign copies.
