Don’t get mad, get oven… er even on The Great British Bump-Off from John Allison

Dark Horse Comics and John Allison whisk together a new Agatha Christie-style mystery set in the world of English competitive baking in The Great British Bump-Off. Max Sarin folds their art into John Allison’s scrumptious story, with Sammy Borras incorporating her color to create the light and fluffy, yet perfectly mixed new comic series.

When she enters her country’s most beloved baking competition, Shauna Wickle’s goal is to delight the judges, charm the nation, and make a few friends along the way. But when a fellow contestant is poisoned, it falls to her to apprehend the culprit while avoiding premature elimination from the UK Bakery Tent… and being the poisoner’s next victim!

The Great British Bump-Off issue #1 (of 4) springs into comic shops April 12, 2023. The first issue will also include a variant cover by Dan Hipp.

All four issues of The Great British Bump-Off will be collected in a paperback edition, available November 1, 2023. It will be available soon to pre-order at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and your local comic shop and indie bookstore.

Good, Evil, and Everything In-Between in Steeple Volume 3

From John Allison, the creator of Giant Days, comes the next installment in his supernatural tale of friendship, the devil, and moral gray areas— Steeple Volume 3 at Dark Horse Comics!

A new year begins in Tredregyn, and a Satanic ritual goes awry–bringing the filming of a cozy TV detective drama to town. Unfortunately, this particular Pandora’s box contains a few things a lot less pleasant than casual jobs and showbiz glitz. Plus, in a special backup feature, a teen sleuth puts the cat among the parish pigeons as she attempts to solve the disappearance of a glamorous author.

The Steeple Volume 3 paperback will be available at comic stores August 10, 2022 and in bookstores August 23, 2022. It is available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and at your local comic shop and bookstore. Steeple Volume 3 will retail for $19.99.
