“All sorts of colorful characters and biting satire of the music industry that still manages to love the craziness that is the music industry. It’s funny, fascinating, and it encourages you to look over it more than once, because there’s so much going on … It’s a blast.” – Comic Book Resources

Meet has-been record-label boss, Gerry Corden and drug-addled maniac, producer Greg Pastis, as they assemble the acts for their new label. Cue an angel voiced grotesque, a mystery solving teen gang, a schoolboy DJ haunted by robots, Nazi-punk-zombies and more.

Hitsville UK is a stained love-letter to the weirder corners of pop music. The best, though possibly the only, musical-pop-art-soap-opera in comic book form.

Each page is a rush of playful artwork, shifting styles fast and loose to match each genre of music, with the jokes coming quick and sharp. Full of sly digs and references to musical genres past and present,
Hitsville appeals to music obsessives as much as comic fans.

REVIEWS

Broken Frontier

•Comic book website

“This is the sort of strip that would have been very at home in the pages of the influential, late, great ‘90s comics/style mag Deadline. Mad as a bag of rabid ferrets ... It’s a furious, frantic procession of reality-challenged protagonists with a unique pull all of its own. Hitsville’s visuals are an intoxicating and vibrant fusion of Shaky Kane and Brendan McCarthy, imbued with extra life by the gorgeous, kaleidoscopic colouring. In Hitsville UK, Cox and Riordan have united to create something quite unlike anything else you’re likely to read this year. A riotous, frenzied whirlwind of a comic book.” – Andy Oliver

Comic Heroes

•Comics magazine

“A perfect three minute chemical-infused rush of a comic.”

Forbidden Planet

•Comics retailer

“A bloody great accumulation of inspired madness, musical insanity and general chaos... a pure, unadulterated hit of a comic.” – Richard Bruton
