Just a quick post to mention that the third book in the new series of Roy of the Rovers is out now from Rebellion. Once again, writer Rob Williams and artist Ben Willsher deliver the goods in this modern day reboot of the popular character. A series well worth following!

Here's the PR and the first three pages...

RELEASE DATE: 27th June 2019

ISBN: 9781781086735

The third instalment of the all new – and highly anticipated - Roy of the Rovers graphic novel series! Roy and the team have battled through a tough season, but have they got enough left to get promoted? Or will they fall at the final hurdle and see the club sold by its greedy owner? The new era of Roy of the Rovers continues!

Available in print from: book stores, Amazon, and UK comic book stores via Diamond. 
Available in digital from: 2000 AD webshop & apps for iPadAndroid and Windows 10

Rebellion have also revealed the cover to Roy of the Rovers: Best of the '60s, which will be published in August, a month after their Best of the '50s volume that I previewed here. The 1960s volume will reprint strips from Tiger by Joe Colquhoun and others that first appeared in the early '60s. I'll post more info about it next month.


After a busy week, and trying to fight off some virus, I won't have time to post on this blog for a while but normal service will resume sometime in July.
