Scotland Yardie is the first UK, Black, urban graphic novel that takes on institutionalised racism, police brutality, Brexit and the gentrification of Brixton through the lens of satire. It has been described as a ‘Black Lethal Weapon in Sarth London.’
A bit about the character…
Scotland Yardie was the break-out character from the controversial cult, comic classic Skank Magazine from the nineties. After twenty years, the character returns in his first graphic novel written by comic book author Bobby Joseph (the creator of Skank Magazine and Black Eye comic) and illustrated by Joseph Samuels (vice.com).
The £10.99 london-based graphic novel, is published by Knockabout Comics – Britain’s biggest independent comic book publisher. Scotland Yardie is available in all good bookshops (and some bad ones too).
