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.

It’s always nice to see when all of that effort pays off and leads to something great, which it certainly has for local boy Gordon McClean, writer of small press title No More Heroes.

Here’s a little sneak peak at what we have in store over the next week or so:
