“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. Book one, Serial Killer, is available from Amazon. World-famous crime writer Ian Rankin, called Serial Killer ‘twisted, very funny.’

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.”

 PRAISE FOR SERIAL KILLER

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.

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.

Be Vigilant!

The Vigilant, the new one-shot collection from Rebellion, has a really great cover and this looks like an impressive revival of stories that were loved by the readers. But I think it’s regrettable if the original creators of these characters, or their...

Bolland’s Slaine

Just got my Hachette volumes of The Horned God. Very impressed with the accompanying poster by Brian Bolland showing Dredd, Strontium Dog and Slaine. Brian's depiction of Slaine is absolutely spot-on. Slaine's character is summed up perfectly in it - not...

Change of credit on Goodnight, John-boy

    You will see in future ads for Goodnight, John-Boy that e-book and paperback editions now bear just my name, although the material inside is copyright by Kevin and myself. This was an amicable change, based on the fact that I’ve written the novelization and...

THARGSHEAD REVISITED 2?

Congratulations to us all on Prog 2000, due out tomorrow! All these celebrations remind me of earlier – and less happy – anniversaries, such as my Thargshead Revisited, where I scripted and showcased the artists' complaints. One of them, involving plagiarism, it would...
