London based Nobrow takes inspiration from Aldous Huxley’s dystopic novel Brave New World and asks forty-five talented illustrators and cartoonist to tackle the themes of human individuality, science, and what lays in store for the future.

Fresh off a successful Kickstarter fundraiser, and with a little help from Alternative Comics and Wow Cool, Ted May’s Injury #4 is fully loaded and ready for release.

Nowadays, it’s fairly easy to find toys or collectables from any mainstream comic (there is such a large array of Avengers figurines, ranging from pretty atrocious to an almost hyper-real quality).
