For Disconnected Vol 1, we asked some of the UK’s brightest comic writers and artists to bring us those small town stories that don’t make the big city press. Stories that happen on your doorstep, real life with a splinter through it. Stories that are true, even if they never happened.
Disconnected Vol. 1 launched at Bristol Comic Expo in May 2012. After two sold-out print runs, we have decided to go DIGITAL ONLY with Disconnected Vol.1. We’re just setting up the digital version for download and it will be on sale very soon – watch this space for more info!
