Vampirism can be a bally intolerable nuisance to one's social life - ask Devlin Waugh. Having been transformed into a blood-sucking fi end when on a mission for the Vatican, the one-time Corinthian is now a shadow of his old, jovial self. But now a terrifying evil from Devlin's past has returned with an unquenchable thirst for mayhem. Will the former connoisseur of au courant be equipped to defeat this menace? Or is the world destined to suffer in the putrescent grip of this supernatural, degenerate force? This transcendent tome is brought to you by the considerable talents of John smith (Indigo Prime) Colin McNeil (Judge Dredd) John Burns (Nikolai Dante), Sean Phillips (Fatale), Peter Doherty (The Dreaming) and Jock (Batman).

A reader's history exploring girls' comics.
    Girls' comics were a major genre from the 1950s onwards in Britain and the most popular titles sold between 800,000 and a million copies a week. However, this genre was slowly replaced by magazines which now dominate publishing for girls. Remembered Reading is a readers' history which explores the genre, and memories of those comics, looking at how and why this rich history has been forgotten. The research is based around both analysis of what the titles contained and interviews with women about their childhood comic reading. In addition, it also looks at the other comic books that British girls engaged with, including humour comics and superhero titles. In doing so it looks at intersections of class, girlhood, and genre, and puts comic reading into historical, cultural, and educational context.
