READ EM AND WEEP 1
DARK COMEDY THRILLER
Read Em And Weep is the fictional saga of the Revolution that changed readers’ lives. Based on the real-life comics and their creators, it’s the story of Blitzkrieg! (Battle), Aaagh! (Action), Space Warp (2000 AD starring Judge Dredd), and Raven (Misty) told over four novels starting with… Serial Killer.
It follows the fortunes of Dave, Greg and Joy – the young creators who spearheaded the Revolution – producing fiercely anti-establishment and wildly futuristic comics as they endlessly fight, rival and betray each other.
The saga starts with a depressed Dave working on the pre-Revolution Spanker: on stories like The Caning Commando, so ridiculous they are laugh-out-loud hilarious today. And girls’ serials like the wolf girl Feral Meryl, with mysterious emotions far beyond his shallow understanding of the opposite sex.
Because Dave is emotionally shut down, thanks to the evil newsagent who made his childhood a misery, and his mother’s unexplained disappearance. He hates his life, and he hates his readers.
But then a chain of events as fantastic as his comic stories transforms Dave from a bitter and twisted editor into a defender of kids, disposing of the adults who harm them as he becomes a real-life… Serial Killer.
The 1970s – a dangerous time for kids. An even more dangerous time for adults
Fast-moving, and with as high a body count as the comics themselves, you’ll be hooked from the first page. Get Serial Killer now!
