Comics Plus has both a unique understanding of comics as a medium as well as a special insight into how the library market works. The fact that they give librarians a chance to see books before they purchase titles made Comics Plus a fantastic way to enter the library market” explains T Pub Ltd. CEO Neil Gibson.

About The World of Chub Chub:

This book is an autobiographical giggle as the reader turns back time to enter the youthful mind of T Pub creator Neil Gibson. ‘Chub Chub’, as he is affectionately referred to by his family, is a mischievous young boy everyone can relate to. Short stories like ‘Cat’ or ‘Hidden Scribbles’ let us enjoy the easy and simply logic of children. In ‘Tickle’ and ‘Giving Flowers To Girls’, readers are reminded of simple love is to children and how easy it can be confused! 12 stories fill the book with heart-warming anecdotes that all ages can read again and again.


About Twisted Dark Volume 1:

The first volume in Gibson’s series of twisted tales. This book is formed of 12 individual and unique stories which run to nearly 200 pages. The stories vary from ten year old girls to Colombian drug lords and everything in between. It is left to the reader to find the connections between the stories, with some connections only becoming clear in later volumes. The books contain horror, dark, at times demented, stories incorporating every human emotion, illegal activity, and brutal reality. Using various illustrators allows each story and character to develop their own form. Twisted Dark has been embraced by the comic book world receiving critical acclaim and a cult underground following.

T Pub is a publisher from London and makes its US debut this August. The first volume of Twisted Dark was the #1 book on Amazon Kindle in the UK and they released volume 5 in May. They are listed in the June issue of Diamond Previews, and digital copies of their books are available via Amazon and Comixology.

Tortured Life and Tabatha are suggested for mature readers only, Twisted Dark and Twisted Light are rated 13+ and The World of Chub Chub is suggested for all ages.
