Remission Impossible: Cancertown Returns as Volume 2 Pre-orders Open
“The book grabs you by the throat right from the start and drags you kicking and screaming into the vividly twisted world of Cancertown…what we have here is a well crafted, fantastical story that demonstrates what a comic book should be. I for one can’t wait to read more tales from Cancertown.”
That’s what I had to say about Cy Dethan’s Cancertown: An Inconvenient Tooth back when it was released some three years ago…is it really that long? What can I say, I’m a fan, so I’m more than a little excited to see that Cancertown is back with Cancertown 2: Blasphemous Tumours. There’s a new artist on board in the form of Graeme Howard, replacing Inconvenient Tooth’s Stephen Downey but other than that it looks like business as usual in the town that Cancer built, here’s the rundown…
“Should’ve known better than to trust an angry, blinded monster with a spaz-hand and a grudge.”
Six months after the events of Cancertown: An Inconvenient Tooth, Vince Morley is a dangerously sick man. Bugfuck is in a psychiatric hospital, sticky fingers picking through the darkest corners of the mind that brought Cancertown into existence. The crossing points between Morley’s two realities are wearing thin and all the rules are changing.
“I got my hand bitten off trying to save the world’s biggest cunt from something worse than him. Don’t pretend you know anything about me.”
Within Cancertown, something new has appeared – a creature of horrific violence and limitless rage. The foundations are shaking and the old powers are falling, one by one. Papercut, deadliest of the Cancertown players, seeks out Morley to claim the favour he owes her – a favour that could cost him more than just his life.
We can no longer protect you. Cancertown: Blasphemous Tumours is coming…
