Legendary comics artist Bryan Talbot is offering a free download of his rare comics on his official website! This is a gift for everyone stuck in self-isolation.
Head over to bryan-talbot.com and you can download a PDF or CBR file of over 90 pages of comics drawn by Bryan. It includes rare stories written by the likes of Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman as well as the first strips featuring Bryan's dimension-hopping character Luther Arkwright.
We'll let James speak for the website and the list of comics on offer.
Announcing the Bryan Talbot free comics compilation!
"As a little pick-me-up during the coronavirus lockdown, I asked Bryan if it would be OK to put together a downloadable version of all of the free comics I've published on the site over the years.
Bryan replied with "of course" – and promptly began sending over even more comics for me to include!
So, with the compliments of Bryan and myself, please feel free to download the Bryan Talbot free comics compilation – CBR version or the Bryan Talbot free comics compilation PDF version!

And the only downside to this is that now I will have to upload all of these comics to the site too! – I will work on that during the lockdown – but in the meantime, Bryan and I hope that these comics will help out with the cabin fever during your lockdown.
Stay safe everyone, and see you all at the comicshop when this is all over."
