As the Ice Queen of the Phonogram universe, Emily Aster is only afraid of two things: her past catching up and spending time in dodgy indie venues. In the latest of the seven-stories-in-one-night of the Singles Club, she's having to deal with both. Plus, two complete back-up stories featuring the art of LEIGH GALLAGHER (2000AD, The Witching) and LEE O'CONNOR.

    The b-sides for this issue are a fantastic supplement to the "a-side", as Kid With Knife retells the story of "Rue Britannia," rendered as a hilarious pastiche by Leigh Gallagher, and featuring Gillen's most self-effacing moments yet, alongside yet another two-page outing for Indie Dave with art by Lee O'Connor. Once again, "Phonogram" delivers a truly stunning single issue package that makes the most convincing case yet for the continued existence of the "floppy" format. If only every comic had as much work put into it as "Phonogram." Read Full Review

    As a value package, the two backup stories to Phonogram incorporate enough unique material to keep things interesting. While I’d like to see more of the main plot, what Gillen/McKelvie give us is satisfactory enough to keep the story going. The extra material is icing on the cake with this book, and proves more and more that the creative team is true masters of the comic form. It’s a fantastic bang for your buck and when I say this is the coolest comic around. Read Full Review

    Id be shocked if anyone reading this review isnt already a fan of Phonogram. On the off chance you arent, you should really give this book a shot. And if youre already on the bandwagon, you should consider it your sacred duty to spread the word. This book is too good to remain a cult hit. Read Full Review
