For decades, children all across the British Isles thrilled to the comic-strip exploits of their favourite heroes - The Spider, The Steel Claw, Captain Hurricane and more. But the comics, and their heroes, disappeared...Now Danny, a young student, and Penny, who claims to be the daughter of a forgotten hero, are investigating the disappearances. Meanwhile, in an isolated castle, a group of jailers watch over "criminals" with peculiar pasts and bizarre names and abilities. Is it all real? Are Danny and Penny delusional? Who has all the answers? From the mind of British comics legend Alan Moore, and featuring a brand new introduction by Neil Gaiman, comes the return of the heroes that made Britain great!
Leah Moore and John Reppion are writing partners who are relatively new to comics. Successful stories for Tom Strong's Terrific Tales led to their first series, the acclaimed Wild Girl. Albion is their second published co-created story. Shane Oakley has pencilled Mister X for Vortex Comics, drawn concept art for the forthcoming horror movie Urbane, and is developing Limbo with Alan Moore.
