“Pat Mills is a punk … he has always written outrageously violent,
scabrously satirical and often hilariously funny attacks
on authority and the establishment.”

HERE BE KNIGHTS
The Geek Detective is back! Now comic book editor and armchair serial killer, Dave Maudling, takes on a Masonic order of Knights in a bid to solve his mother’s murder.
And to save kids from the Knights’ Grand Master, depraved TV celebrity and charity fundraiser ‘Fabulous’ Keen, who is getting away with worse than murder. The ‘national treasure’ believes he is above the law, but not Dave’s law.
But Dave, the ‘lard-arse assassin’, can’t murder him by proxy like his other victims; he has to face and kill Keen himself.
And his ghostly femme fatale mother, a ‘ghost in mink’, is there to help him.
Goodnight, John-boy is the second book in the Read Em And Weep series. World-famous crime writer Ian Rankin, called Serial Killer (Book 1) ‘twisted, very funny.’
IT ALL BEGAN IN A GARDEN SHED
IN SCOTLAND, SOME TIME IN 1971
As 2000AD and Judge Dredd celebrates its 40th birthday, Pat at last writes the definitive history of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, and the turbulent, extraordinary and exciting events that shaped it.
Everything you’ve always wanted to know about Judge Dredd, Slaine, Nemesis, ABC Warriors, Flesh, Bill Savage and more, is in this book. Plus the writers and artists who created them and the real-life people and events they drew on for inspiration. The scandals, the back-stabbing and the shocking story that was regarded as “too sensitive” to ever see the light of day is finally told.
WHAT THE READERS ARE SAYING
“Entertaining and gripping” “Interesting, informative and funny this is essential reading“
“A warts and all delve into British comic book history“
“A JOYOUS RIDE.”
Introducing the Geek Detective
Meet comic book editor Dave Maudling, the world’s laziest serial killer. The world’s most cowardly serial killer. Actually, he’s never killed anyone himself – yet. His READERS do his killings for him.
Meet Jean, Dave’s femme fatale mother. She’s glamorous. She’s dangerous. She’s dead.
She tells the ‘lard-arse assassin’ he needs to grow up, sort his life out, lose some weight.
And solve her murder.
“Just finished this twisted, very funny novel – 1st in a series by Pat Mills and Kevin O’Neill. Brilliant skewering of 1970s kids’ comics.”

All the joy of a box set binge of your favourite sitcom wrapped up in a funny book.Amazon Reviewer
This is a book with teeth, it will flick you in the balls with a towel and get off with your girlfriend behind your back. It is full of nuanced speech and setting, full of energy and cunning and most of all you will devour it and ask where the next serving is coming from.Antony Esmond
Quite a few times I’d start laughing my head off reading this in the kitchen and my daughters would want to know what was so funny.Amazon Reviewer
