A skateboarding rivalry that would not be out of place in skateboarding’s forthcoming Olympic debut – the limited hardcover edition of Concrete Surfer is out now!
Written by Pat Mills with art by Christine Ellingham, Concrete Surfer was published in Jinty and the new collection features lovingly restored artwork from this cult classic from 1970s girls’ comics.
The standard paperback edition has been delayed due to the COVID-19 lockdown and will now be published on 17 September 2020
Sent home to Britain after her parents fail to establish a new life in Australia, Jean Everidge is forced to rely on family charity, moving in with her Aunt, Uncle and cousin Carol, successful gymnast, beloved of teachers and pupils alike, and all round charming “top girl”. Jean has one solace left to her – skateboarding, surfing the concrete pavement, while forgetting all her troubles, and feel free. But Jean’s freestyling talent soon attracts attention, and if there’s one thing Carol can’t stand, it’s being out of the spotlight. With the new skatepark freestyle contest coming up, just how far will Carol go to stay number one?
