2 weeks ago

He's the boy of a hundred faces - he is Faceache!

The latest release from The Treasury of British Comics is one of the forgotten greats of British comics. Faceache is arguably the greatest work of Ken Reid, an illustrator consistently name-checked by the greats of comics - from Alan Moore to Kevin O'Neill, John Wagner to Pat Mills.

Faceache is now available to pre-order along with a special edition - limited to 150 copies - that includes a special print of one of Reid's classic Faceache strips.

A boy with skin like stretch rubber who could “scrunge” his into any shape, this stunning hardcover collects these darkly comical one-page tales for the very first time, with glowing introductions by Moore as well as Reid's son, Anthony. These humorous adventures of Ricky Rubberneck, the boy with a "bendable bonce", see him "scrunge" his face into anything, whether it's mimicking others or turning into grotesque creatures - but he's always coming a cropper!
