London-based publisher Titan Comics continue to prove there's still plenty of life in British comics by producing titles that are sold exclusively to comics speciality shops in the USA and UK.
As British newsstand distribution is so unreliable and problematic these days, the direct sales business model to comic shops has become a stronger alternative for publishers, and no UK company has embraced it more than Titan.
Here's a quick preview of just four of Titan's comics that arrive in comics shops this Wednesday, 9th August.
Anno Dracula 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem No.5

The Lost Fleet - Corsair No.3
