Culture Shock is the latest Mice graphic novel from acclaimed bande dessinée artist and illustrator Roger Mason and will be launching on 23rd February at The London Super Comic Convention at the Excel.

Praise for The Mice:

“This is smart, incredibly bleak science fiction of the sort that seems to have a natural home in the UK thanks to 2000 AD and its ilk. Big on ideas and action, but small in stature, The Mice is a highly unusual post-apocalyptic story and one that 2000 AD fans in particular shouldn’t be without. Just don’t try the soup…”

Alasdair Stuart, SFX.co.uk

“Roger Mason’s fully-formed future scenario pits tiny terrorists in the Land of the Giants against occupying alien forces. A rollicking SF epic brought to life with splendidly fluid chiaroscuro brushwork by one of the UK’s most exciting young talents.”

Gary Spencer Millidge, creator of Strangehaven

“Small press comics at its absolute best… 9 out of 10.”

Comics International

“This is a gem and worth seeking out.”

“I would highly recommend not only this episode but the series as a whole”
