“Absolutely full of wonderful weirdness … It’s a cracking read is Hitsville UK, the characterisation over-the-top and extreme, sure, but there’s a weird truth in those wild stereotypes, and loads of laughs along the way, Riordan and Cox skillfully guiding us every step.” – Forbidden Planet

Hitsville UK #3 continues the many stories surrounding the titular indy record label and its surreal cast of weird and wonderful musicians.

Does Greg Pastis' plan to pump grotesque country singer Gwillum full of hallucinogenics pay off? Who are the Chimney Sweeps and what do they want? And what will become of Jack Spatz's new alliance with a secret dragon's den of Tories?

Smart lyrical references and cutting satire aplenty in the third issue of
Hitsville UK by John Riordan and Dan Cox. 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.

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
