New Tablet, new Download Comics

"CD Comics Surreal Murder Mystery Series is certainly a different type of comic, and a world away from the mainstream."
Use the new Tablet, Smartphone, Android device you got for Christmas or your new Desktop to read a new style of comic from Sheffield UK based publisher CDComics these are nothing like Marvel, DC or Image.

Here's a few more extracts from independent reviews

"Daley’s unique, dry wit is the highlight of his writing. He may write great stories, but when it comes to the closing pages, there’s no one else to compare."
"You’ve got to hand it to Craig Daley of CDComics. His imagination and concept of whodunnit stories are magnificent as he creates a picture, or rather a graphic novel, of a bustling alternate world that still has roots in real life"
"He's crafted a story that feels like an episode of television crime drama. It read and felt very much like an episode of BBC's Luther, the acclaimed detective drama."

"There were twists that were surprising, and the vein of funny running through the whole thing really hit the spot! Full of hidden Easter Eggs as well and it really hits the description of a 'surreal murder mystery'."

here's the links to the download sites where CDComics are available,
priced under around $1/£1 for a minimum of 32 full colour pages

Sheffield Wednesday or United Christmas Download Comic

Football Crazy: The Theatre of Nightmares on the Road to Insanity, is a 66 page comic book narrative that tells the story of a great FA Cup run, against the backdrop of a murder investigation.

The comic/graphic novel is available in either red or blue and white, so it's the perefct present for Wednesday or Unitedites.

Yes, the Manchester United players are all named after serial killers, wait until you see who is playing for Arsenal, Spurs and Liverpool... This is 'Roy of the Rovers' meets the 'X-Files' in 'The Twilight Zone', as ritualistic murder in Sheffiled, clashes with FA Cup victories. This is tongue in cheek macabre horror with 'Look North' reporting as Jim Rosenthal makes the draw for the next round.

"The way the games are covered is in such a way that you could well be watching a highlights reel, and it also captures the other side of the cup as well; the banality of the TV studio. Jim Rosenthal’s stellar FA Cup draws get sent up in hilarious style, along with regional news programme, Look North. With these quirks adding to an overall brilliant story, you really are missing out on some genius story telling if you don’t give Football Crazy a go."

The Graphic Novel CDrom version is available from Sheffield Space Centre, Galaxy 4 or the Record Collector in Broomhill, the Funhouse Woodseats, Rare and Racey Devonshire Green and Blackwell's on Mappin Street and priced at just £2.50

The Rotting Zombie reviews Spring Heeled Jack

Spring Heeled Jack: From the Tunnels of Hell gets another totally Independent Review...

Here's a couple of extracts from what the Rotting Zombie thought about the comic

The Plot
'Every one hundred years on the night of Halloween a demonic figure with glowing red eyes and the ability to send men insane with fear appears in Sheffield to terrorise young women. Dating back as far as people can remember this thing has appeared like clockwork in the 73rd year of every century but come Halloween 2011 and the creature has returned out of sync. Not only that but it is now murdering people where before it only terrorised.'

The Opinion
'I love how this story is set out, it is split into three different tales almost. One takes place in 1873, one takes place in 1973, while the last takes place in 2011. The best one I thought was the 1973 one in which a young man and a Police Officer contemplate going into the tunnels under Sheffield in search of the demonic prankster. Another good comic though, hypnotic, and entertaining and worth a look at.'

For the full review visit

Spring Heeled Jack is available in two parts from the following download sites priced around $0.99/80pUK or Euro equivalent 

Alternatively, if you live in Shefield, where the story is set, you could buy both parts together on CDrom in a slimline DVD with a wrap around cover for £2.50.

The CDrom version is available from the Sheffield Space Centre, Rare and Racey, Broomhill's Galaxy 4 and Record Collector, the Funhouse and Blackwell's on Mappin Street and carries the Sheffield title...
