Defoe 1666 by Pat Mills and Leigh Gallagher
London, 1668. It is two years since the city was devastated by the Great Fire, the inferno caused by a comet passing over the capital. But from the ashes rose the undead, hungry for the flesh of the living. Protecting the populace are zombie hunters like Titus Defoe, a former soldier who now makes it his mission to purge the ghouls.
In Leigh’s own words “This collection also features around twenty or so panels redrawn/retouched by me, so this is the “remastered” edition if you want to call it that!” so even fans of the 2000 AD strip have a good reason to pick up the book.

My Aunt Margaret’s Adventure - A Long Lost Tale of Mystery and Suspense, attributed by M.R. James to Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu
“My Aunt Margaret’s Adventure” first appeared in the March 1864 issue of the Dublin University Magazine, which was then under the editorship of Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu. The DUM was a regular venue for Le Fanu’s work. The February issue contained the final instalments of his novel Wylder’s Hand, while the April issue saw the publication of “Wicked Captain Walshawe of Wauling”–”My Aunt Margaret’s Adventure” appeared in the interceding issue. Believed by M.R. James and S.M. Ellis to be the work of Le Fanu, “My Aunt Margaret’s Adventure” shares many motifs, themes, and effects found in the Irish author’s work. This new edition will feature commentary on the story and its authorship by two leading Le Fanu scholars, Jim Rockhill (introduction and annotations) and Gary W. Crawford (afterword).
