About this comic:

This is a fabulous comic, that has been created by a well-known Leicester Artist - cartoonist and illustrator - Rachael Smith. The comic is a creation around a real-life, awesome band called 'Her Name is Calla', who are real-life friends based in Leicester, Leeds and York. If you are fans of Rachael's other comic stories or of Her Name is Calla, then you'll love this comic!  It is funny, vibrant and colourful - and I'm intrigued about the really excellent, bright quality of the print used to produce it. I speak the truth - when my copy arrived, I couldn't put it down for at least two hours - and I must have looked and read through from cover-to-cover three, (or was it four?) times. It really is that good, and trust me, just like me it will put a big smile on your face. If you want a comedy horror story about a great band, then please get your hands on this great little comic!

Rachael is also known for her awesome 'Vicky Park' comic-strip, which has appeared in every edition of the Leicester Mercury's "More" magazine, every Saturday, since its launch in October, 2011. And of course, not forgetting her wonderful, 'Flimsy The Kitten'!
