Punks Not Dead: London Calling
IDW / Black Crown Pub
Writer: David Barnett
Artist: Martin Simmonds

Teenage geek Fergie Ferguson and his BF Sid, the ghost of a punk rocker who only Fergie can see or hear, are on the lam for a murder they didn’t exactly commit. They’ve made it to London but on their tail are the police, the quirky paranormal investigation agency the Department of Extra-Usual Affairs, and some really freaky magpie monsters, so there’s not (much) time for sightseeing

While Fergie tracks down his long-absent father to get answers about his powerful new “abilities” (Sid calls them “psychic grenades”), DfEUA’s old-school mod super spy Dorothy Culpepper and her sensible young partner Asif Baig uncover evidence that links Fergie to the underworld. Fergie’s mum Julie and his not-a-girlfriend Natalie also join forces to save Fergie from life in prison… but with a psychopathic serial killer showing an interest, everybody might soon be running out of time.

How does any of this connect to a visually searing three-chord apocalypse? Never mind the bollocks-another season of the critical darling PUNKS NOT DEAD is here with endless pints of anarchy and social distortion!

PUNKS NOT DEAD: LONDON CALLING is a five-issue miniseries written by David Barnett and illustrated by Martin Simmonds.
