UK small press galleries

gallerybanner1In these galleries, covers from my personal collection of small press UK comics. Most of these were bought, sold and distributed through the Fast Fiction table and mail order service. The collection will build into a fairly representative sample of the unusual and imaginative small press comics and stripzines published in England in the 1980s and early 1990s.

All images are © Copyright by the respective artist.

We are publishing these covers online since we regard these artworks as an important and neglected part of UK underground comics history. If you are one of the artists and you object to this, please contact me if you wish to have your cover removed from the site. Conversely, you should also contact me if you wish to further the enterprise and submit any further examples of small press comics from this period.
