The Castle in the Sea by Anil Serpin
A long graphic novel about an island full of natural wonders, the people and creatures who inhabit it, and their struggle for harmony.
Two Gems—one Red and one Blue. They contain the power of the Guardian Dragon, who grants it to the people of Crescent Island when they need to protect their home from outside threats. The bearer of the Red Gem is granted incredible destructive power, as well as near-immortality. The bearer of the Blue Gem gains protection from, and the ability to kill, the Red Gembearer. No one person can handle the power of both Gems at once; they would be overwhelmed and destroyed. This power is granted with the promise of its return to the Guardian once the island is safe. With the power of these Gems, two groups of natives; the Woodfolk and the Seafolk of Crescent Island, have defended their home for generations. They have always coexisted peacefully, living in their separate territories, coming together only when there is a threat to the island. When this happens, one Gembearer is selected from each group — the Red Gembearer defending the island, and the Blue Gembearer ensuring the return of the Gems to their rightful place once the island is safe again.

Hopeless by Clara Meath

It’s a small town that welcomes newcomers, like 15-year-old Amanda Adams and her mom de ella… but only if they don’t ask too many questions.

Speed Run by Steve Thompson
In this world, you have to run fast… or it will catch you. Don’t trip, don’t stop, and don’t look back. The slowest dies.
On a tiny planet, far away… Two teams from Earth, a bunch of scientists, and a group of adventurers, have established two bases. Their mission: to exploit the planet and its unique elements. What they didn’t know when they arrived, but what keeps them trapped there now, is that this world orbits a pulsar whose radiation produces some very strange effects. And in the summertime, those effects are heightened to extraordinary degrees! The only way to move between the tw bases is as fast as possible. Vehicles won’t work, engines fail in the ever-changing conditions, so running as fast as possible, leaping high and sliding and skidding across the surface, is the only way. And what a surface! Constantly shifting and throwing up new challenges all the time. It’s so traumatic, they have to be sedated so they don’t lose their minds at the kaleidoscope of terrains and creatures they’ll rush through. But what happens if they stop running? Then IT will catch up to them? What is IT? The most unstoppable force in the universe. And it will change everything.
Stuff – A Bit More by Phil Elliott
A collection of new comics and illustrations, with some obscure stuff.
Stuff – A Bit More is all about comics. I first discovered comic books in Chelmsford and Maldon, Southend, Ilford, and other towns in Essex. Stuff – A Bit More is my homage to those times, when I started reading Pow! and Wham! and Mighty World of Marvel in the 1970s and then stumbled across more Marvel and DC comics; Warren magazines; Star*Reach; HeavyMetal; Mad, Atlas and Charlton Comics.
