Death Sentence London is out 19th April

Death Sentence London is officially out as a book 19th April  - and the reviews so far have been generous.

"The best British comic in years" Buzzfeed

"Death Sentence was a singular work of art. How could you top that? Montynero and Martin Simmonds achieve exactly that." Pop Matters

"Death Sentence: London is quite possibly the most important work of 2015." Pop Matters

"a series we atPopMatters have always felt tabled cultural and geopolitical issues in a popular format, in much the same way Alan Moore, Dave Gibbons and John Higgins’s seminal Watchmen did for the 20th century" Pop Matters

"Bloody brilliant" Comic Bastards

"messes with your brain, gives you a strange, surreal thrill ride, has one wild, outrageous moment tumble after the next " Comics Bulletin

"This comic has soul and smarts" Comics Bulletin

"Death Sentence: London #1 is like a great punk rock song, full of anger and outrage, energy and excitement, and a bit of scorn for those who don’t understand it" Jason Sacks

"Thought provoking, entertaining & engaging in equal measure" Comics Anonymous

"grabs you by the balls and doesn't let go" Big Comic Book Page

"Martin Simmonds artwork is stellar here. Ben Templesmith has someone hot on his heels for sure." Big Comic Book Page

"something just as crazy and wonderful as Grant Morrison would create." Graphic Policy

"The original Death Sentence was comic of the year and I stated its importance to the genre. What Death Sentence: London has done is keep that importance but you can now feel Monty Nero, comfortable with his craft, breaking down further boundaries with a huge smile on face." Garbage File

"I've never read a comic quite like Death Sentence, and I'm enjoying the wild ride thoroughly." Comic Crusaders

"Writer MontyNero crafts a clever, gritty story, and artist Martin Simmonds provides amazing visuals, with creative layouts and stunning use of color." Chuck's comic of the day

"A darkly funny sci-fi thriller...the story of the most dangerous burnouts on the face of the earth"

This was a real labor of love for Martin Simmonds and me so please do check it out in your local comic/book shop and let us know what you think.

I've also got a new wordpress site which you're welcome to check out here if you want.

Here's the cover to Death Sentence issue 3 - a homage to the great Bill Sienkiewicz. Bill's work was the first to really blow me away and inspired me to be an artist and get into comics. If you'd told little me I'd ever get the chance to bring things full circle on our own comic I'd have passed out. Bill's painting's a hundred times better than mine in every regard of course, but it was a fun learning experience. And if you've never read Elektra Assassin by Miller and Sienkiewicz I can't recommend it highly enough, it's a surreal masterpiece.  

Death Sentence 3 is out August 12th and you can preorder it from any comic shop today. Issue 1 hits the shops June 10th.
