Compiled by comic artist ILYA, whose stories are published in the US (Marvel, DC, Dark Horse), Japan (Kodansha) and Europe, The Mammoth Book of Cult Comics brings together for the first time in a single volume lost classics from recent decades of underground and independent British and American comic strip art. It includes the miraculous-in-the-mundane diary comics of John Welding (Goathland), and Paul O’Connell’s chilling yet darkly funny cut-ups, The Sound of Drowning. Also Through the Habitrails, the little-known masterpiece by Jeff Nicholson. A chance to catch up on previously unseen hidden gems.

Reviews

No prior knowledge is required to enter and enjoy these tales across a spectrum from biography and autobiography to uninhibited comedy and fantasy. Prepare for the real and surreal to blur and blend, as a despairing office worker fits a jar over his head full of beer and young lovers fight after a wispy succubus steals the man's seed. Here's to a second volume
Paul Gravett, Independent
Altogether outstanding
