Great Beast Comics is proud to release the first issue of John Riordan and Dan Cox‘s new series Hitsville UK, in both print and digital editions.

Meet has-been, record label boss, Gerry Corden and drug-addled maniac, Greg Pastis, as they assemble the acts for their new label. Cue an angel voiced grotesque, a mystery solving teen gang, a schoolboy DJ haunted by robots, Nazi-punk-zombies and more.

Hitsville UK is a stained love-letter to the weirder corners of pop music. The best, though possibly the only, musical-pop-art-soap-opera in comic book form.

Each page is a rush of playful artwork, shifting styles fast and loose to match each genre of music, with the jokes coming quick and sharp. Full of sly digs and references to musical genres past and present, Hitsville appeals to music obsessives as much as comic fans.

“A bloody great accumulation of inspired madness, musical insanity and general chaos… a pure, unadulterated hit of a comic”

-Richard Bruton – Forbidden Planet International

“A perfect three minute chemical-infused rush of a comic”
– Comic Heroes magazine

36 pages, full colour.

You can purchase the PRINT edition for £3.50 here

and the DIGITAL edition for 99p can be found here.

We’ve also teamed up with artist John Riordan to sell some Hitsville UK prints, if fancy drawings on your walls are your thing.

We’ll be releasing issue two just in time for Thought Bubble in November in the meantime you can keep up to date with the comic’s progress on their newly-launched Twitter.
