• Carl Creel was just trying to live. But sometimes trying isn’t enough.
• Now, to save the life he built for himself – and maybe everything else – Carl Creel has to do the impossible.
• The Absorbing Man has to kill the IMMORTAL HULK.
As if being an awkward, bullied 15-year-old wasn’t enough, suddenly “Fergie” Ferguson can see ghosts. Well, one ghost specifically… a certain punk rocker named Sid.
Sid’s spirit has been trapped in London’s Heathrow airport for 40 years, until the day he meets Fergie. Now Sid’s ghost is stuck to Fergie, and Fergie has to content with an unruly Ghost sidekick and some weird, uncontrollable new “abilities.” How does the father Fergie never knew fit into all this? And why is the Department of Extra-Usual Affairs showing an interest? Never mind the bollocks—all of this, plus fish fingers, chunky chips, and endless pints of anarchy in the critically-acclaimed series that collects Punks Not Dead issues #1-6.
Vault Comics has announced that Friendo #1 has sold out at the distributor. The issue will receive a second printing that features a brand new Vault Vintage cover by artist Nathan Gooden and designer Tim Daniel.
Vault Vintageis a line of alternate covers that celebrate the artistic achievements of both modern and legendary professionals of the comic book industry. For Friendo #1’s second printing, Nathan Gooden and Tim Daniel pay tribute to Frank Miller and Klaus Janson’s jarring Daredevil issue 184 cover.
Frank Miller changed the game when he embarked upon his Daredevil run in May, 1979. Working closely with inker Klaus Janson, Miller’s deep blacks and evocative line work darkened the series and raised the stakes for Matthew Murdock. The violence in Hell’s Kitchen became all too real and far too costly.
Friendo #1 was originally published on September 26, 2018. Created by writer Alex Paknadel and artist Martin Simmonds with colors by Dee Cunniffe and letters by Taylor Esposito.

The Kickstarter campaign for Death Sentence Liberty starts today, written by Monty Nero with art by Martin Simmonds . It’s the third story in the series and both were fantastic and entertaining reads.
Death Sentence Liberty tells of three characters afflicted by an STD that kills them in six months but gives them superpowers.
Verity’s the beating heart of the story. Frustrated and unfulfilled she longs for something more than cheap thrills and empty sex – to be a great artist and achieve something timeless. With no fuck’s left to give she’s a dangerous maverick rallying against an increasingly aggressive government.
Weasel is a rockstar drug-addict desperate to reconcile with his family and record a legendary album before he dies. His G-plus powers are as unreliable as he is, spreading chaos or comedy – which is why Verity dumped him.
Roots is half-woman, half-plant, and 100% badass – an ex drug dealer using her burgeoning G-plus powers to protect her hood from police and gang violence.
Additionally, Jeb is an FBI agent infiltrating the UK’s top-secret G-plus research facility to steal their secrets – a family man in far worse trouble than he realises.
Monty Nero is an award winning Comics Masters graduate from Dundee University. He co-created the hit graphic novel Death Sentence with artist Mike Dowling (2014), and its sequel Death Sentence: London (2016) with Martin Simmonds. He’s also written for 2000ad, Vertigo and Marvel, including Hulk, Amazing X-Men, and X-men Gold.
