As to the new books:
Burke and Hare (Martin Conaghan & Will Pickering) is the true story of Scotland's most notorious serial killers, who committed no fewer than sixteen murders between 1827 and 1828. There's been a lot of buzz about this book, and from what I've seen it's well deserved. There's a preview on myebook.com.
MILK (Stephen White) is a collection of short stories featuring an amazingly diverse thematic and artistic range. A fascinating concept book, described by Alan Grant as offering "some of the most beautiful, expressive art that I’ve seen in a long time." Again, a preview can be found on myebook.com.
Buskers is a truly intriguing project. Developed jointly as a comic and film from a story by singer and producer, Jeymes Samuel, the book is written by Sean Michael Wilson, with art by International Manga and Anime Festival Award winner, Michiru Morikawa. Definitely one to watch out for. Here's the preview.
You can pre-order to collect on the day, or to be sent out by post (paid by cheque or paypal) so long as you order by 3rd October.
MILK and Buskers special editions are limited to 100 copies.
