Lost: Boys is an anthology of four short comics, brought to you by Disconnected Press.
Remember when you got your first bike? There was something about that first bicycle that mattered. You could go further, faster than ever before. You lived in a bigger world. But a bigger world can be daunting, harsh. A bigger world can lead you to things you never expected. In a bigger world, it’s much easier to be lost.
Lost: Boys was launched at Bristol Comic Expo in May 2012. We are delighted to have sold out of our first print run, so there are no copies available right now. Our second print run and a digital edition will be available soon, so get in touch if you’d like to reserve a copy!
Linsay Powell of Comics Anonymous says: The Lost: Boys anthology has raised the bar for modern anthologies. Each page and panel within shows such deliberation that it’s impossible not to immediately take notice of Disconnected Press and seek out these individual creators’ other work. This is an emotive and sensitive anthology that will be well worth your time in seeking out.
Here’s our team of creators:
