A Compendium of the Black Crown Quarterlies, including:
• "Tales from The Black Crown Pub," the 40-page lead story by award-winning auteur Rob Davis.
• "Cud: Rich and Strange," by bandmates/co-writers Will Potter & Carl Puttnam and artist Philip Bond, follows the rise and fall and rise of a Britpop band that should be on your radar!
• "House Amok," told from the POV of young twin sisters in a neo-nuclear family on the brink of delirium. Are they possesed by demonic forces or just normal folk who convert an old school bus for a cross-country road trip to save the world one arson/murder/conspiracy theory at a time? From Christopher Sebela and Shawn McManus.
• "Bandtwits," a coming-of-age heist story about two slacker 20-somethings in the spirit of Edgar Wright's Baby Driver by young British auteur Jamie Coe.
