Today sees the release of Cover by Brian Michael Bendis and David Mack. Their new creator-owned series that will be impossible to find on eBay because of its name. With a comic book creator travelling from convention to convention and finding a very willing (and rich) fan. Including meeting her in London.
The only good restaurant in London?
Culinarily deprived? I think the problem is that Bendis went to Super Comic Con in London last year. Or rather to the Business Design Centre in Islington, North London. And maybe Dan Slott took him to a Chiquitos.
The Guardian did a good job in taking down the New Yorker’s patronising take on this kind of thing. Maybe next time he’s over someone could take him to the Barbary, the Ivy, Chiltern Firehouse, Roast, Temper, Smoke And Salt, The Petersham, Core by Claire Smyth, Jamavar, Frog, Kaspar’s, Talli Joe, Gymkhana, the Ledbury, Quo Vadis, Trishna, Xu, Indian Accent, Hide, Clipstone, Smoking Goat, Dirty Bones, Benares, Little Smoke, Bombay Palace, London Shell Co, or many, many, many more…
And okay, maybe it’s not Bendis himself saying this but his character. But let’s remember, this is the same Brian Michael Bendis who had Cambridge and Cambridge University be in London and had people walking around it with guns.

Years in the making, from the award-winning team of Brian Michael Bendis and multimedia sensation David Mack, comes a brand-new graphic novel experience. And it’s all kind of based on a true story. Sort of…
Deep in the American intelligence community, someone realizes that comic book creators, who travel all over the world to sell their wares, might make the perfect cover for operatives in the dangerous, topsy-turvy world of intelligence and counterintelligence…and that’s when all hell breaks loose. This is the story of the time the world of comics and the world of international spywork smashed together-with unexpected results!
Artist David Mack, follows his Emmy nominated work on Jessica Jones, and his critically acclaimed video work for Dashboard Confessionals and Amanda Palmer, brings another completely unique vision to this driving comedic spy story that is also a beautiful Valentine to all those creators who sit alone and make beautiful stories.In Shops: Sep 05, 2018 SRP: $3.99
