Ready For Pop by Hurk
London, England, the mid-sixties. In what appears to have been a murder attempt, Britain’s greatest pop sensation ‘Vic Vox’ has been left just a foot tall – the effects of the ‘shrink drug’ administered by assailants unknown. Detective Chief Inspector Ladyshoe and his team at Scotland Yard are out to find out who did it … and why, but they are up against the clock. They need to crack the case and return Vox to full size within the week for him to perform as the main act on television’s biggest one-off live pop show – ‘Ready For Pop’. Detectives, gangsters, pop groups, washed-up comedians and models all cross paths in this surreal pop-art crime caper.
Hurk is a comicsmith from the Garden Of England and has been involved in the underground and small press comics scene since the turn of this century. He is not very good at perspective but enjoys getting it wrong. This is his first graphic novel and largest work to date. Previously he has regularly contributed to the UK underground comic newspaper ‘The Comix Reader’, anthologies like ‘Your Days are numbered’, ‘Off Life’, ‘The Mammoth Book Of Skulls’ and ‘Hive’ and co-founded the small press and comics collective ‘The Fancy Butcher’ in 2008. http://www.lordhurk.com/
