An Incomplete Sleaze Castle. You May Not Know What It Is. But You Should Buy It.

Asking anyone to drop $50 on a comic book they've never heard of is a big thing.

But that's exactly what I'm doing now.

This is the Sleaze Castle Incomplete Directors Cut in Previews right now, for July publication. 480 pages long, containing all the issues of More Tales From Sleaze Castle, Tales From Sleaze Castle, Sleaze Castle and Petra Etcetera publishing.

It traverses genres on its journey, from grand sci-fi space opera, to mundane student hijinks, through dimensions and very much stuck in this one, with a strong mostly-female cast and

Love And Rockets meets Hitch Hikers Guide To The Galaxy by way of Cerebus is probably the closest log line I could use that would make any sense. It's delightfully inventive, deliciously absorbing, amusingly detailed and one of the finest comic books I've had the pleasure to read. It's also incredibly, incredibly British.

If you like good comics, if you have an Anglophilic bone in your body, take the chance. Seriously, what's $50 between friends? And you can get a hardcover volume for the same price direct from the publisher…
