  • Riker Vs Gastonby Scott Tierney

    Andrews UK 2012; US$ 2.99

    Pointless conversations: a selection of daft, ridiculous and utterly pointless meanderings from the mind of Scott Tierney. If you’ve ever wanted to know the answers to why Superman is a coward, why Spiderman should technically be deformed, and if Superdog caused the death of Krypton, then these bite-sized comics will reveal all. The discussions... more...

  • The Great Filthby Stephen Halliday

    The History Press 2011; US$ 18.94

    Victorian Britain was the world's industrial powerhouse. Its factories, mills and foundries supplied a global demand for manufactured goods.
