Beast Wagon Tails
Limited to 50 Regular Covers and 50 Sketch Covers.
This November, the team behind the critically acclaimed independent comic series Beast Wagon will release a short anthology collection featuring stories of cautionary and vengeful animal stories previously printed in Comic Heroes and Starburst magazines.
Fox-hunts gone awry, democratic ant colonies, rebellious Orcas and hedonistic bull runs - a perfect primer for the double-sized finale issue which is released in the New Year, Beast Wagon Tails features the full incidents glimpsed in the global ‘visions’ of Sherman, the main series’ prophetic tortoise, all delivered in the darkly humorous tone the series has become famous for.
All stories are penned by series writer Owen Michael Johnson (Raygun Roads, Reel Love) and lettered by Colin Bell (The Fiction, And Then Emily Was Gone) and illustrated by some of the UK’s finest artists including series co-creator John Pearson, Andy Bloor (Phonogram, Midnight Man), Martin Simmonds (Death Sentence, Heretics) and Jay Gunn (Surface Tension).
The anthology also includes ‘The Belly Of The Beast’ – an essay of the mythological reading of Beast Wagon by Scream magazine’s Max Deacon.
