A Quiet Disaster by Alex Potts
239x168mm, 32 colour matte pages, £5.00
Philip was getting old. His face was getting wrinkled, his hairline was moving backwards and he was on the waiting list for a knee operation. It was his day off and he didn’t have any plans, so he ate his breakfast in front of the computer screen and asked himself “What do I want to do?”

We follow Philip on his day off work as he struggles to find meaning and happiness through the everyday decisions that make up a day. Why did he cross that street? Does he keep walking, or shelter from the rain? What will make him happy? And just why is that dog wearing glasses?

Our second strip sees Owen D. Pomery return to the characters from his hit comic, ‘The Megatherium Club’. ‘Skeleton Crew’ is the first in a series of standalone adventures pitting the club against the same “villain”, a [...]
