Reviews

"Meanwhile, Manchester's Savoy comics struggle back to life with a one-off production called Monoshock. Writer David Britton has always been at the forefront of the extreme (as readers of his notorious Lord Horror series will testify), but here the terror is mixed with wonder as an ever-changing female protagonist 'trespasses on the dreams of a Surrealist'. A fractured dance through a shifting landscape by Kris Guidio's apocalyptic Beardsley-isms, Monoshock is an item for the connoisseur, a fantasy as far removed from the crass posturings of the Marvel mainstream as it's possible to get."
