I reviewed issue #1 of Gordon McLean’s No More Heroes a few months back – and it kicked ass, but now issue #2 is here and guess what? It kicks even more ass. If there’s one indie title you should be reading, it’s this (ok so maybe this AND The Standard - treat yourself!). It’s not very often that I await the release of a specific small press book, resigning myself more to an “if and when” scenario, but at this year’s Kapow! this book was top of my list to pick up.
By now you’ll hopefully have figured out a few things about the good people of Comics Anonymous, including 1) we’re from Glasgow and 2) we love us some indie comics. Yes we may feast on a never-ending pile of mainstream published comics every week, but it’s always nice to take a break from these and see what’s going on in our local scene – and one thing we’ve noticed – the Glasgow comic scene is booming. At the heart of a lot of this is the creator owned publisher Black Hearted Press, who we’ll be featuring all week on the site, including interviews with those involved and reviews of the comics they’ve released.

Let’s set a comic book in Glasgow, it’s about an escaped mental patient who thinks he’s Humphrey Bogart…..and he’s acting out an entire case in his head based on the movies of Bogie himself. Sounds crazy…..it IS crazy…..but it’s one of the most involving and interesting comics I think I’ve ever read.
