Markosia Spotlight On: Away

Each week we’ll be turning the spotlight on one of the many quality graphic novels from our extensive back catalogue.

This week it’s the turn of Away.

An ordinary man is ripped from his family and life time after time and thrust into the multiverse to learn the skills and abilities he needs to save not just our world, but our entire universe from an impossible invading force.

“Swords, sci-fi and the British Fire Service mix it up in this smartly written and beautiful looking time-bending space adventure. Plenty to fall in love with in this book!”
Martin Simmonds, artist on Black Crown’s “Punks Not Dead”

“An 80-page extravaganza from Jon and Grant that marks some of their best work so far with the added bonus of a creative team in Darren and Rob with all of them surfing the same wavelength. Like binge watching Quantum Leap.”
Gary Watson, Comics Anonymous
