Shuk & Doode by Simon Harrison

Shuk & Doode by Simon Harrison

Dark & Golden Books are excited to collect the 1988 comic serial Shuk and Doode for the very first time. Unseen since its initial publication in the pages of Computer and Video Games magazine, Shuk and Doode is the wild and excessive misadventures of two demons who have escaped from hell, urban satanism, cat burglary and other moments from the night life of a big city. They grin! They leer! They stole my popcorn!

Simon Harrison is the acclaimed artist of Revere, Bradley, and Strontium Dog in 2000AD, as well as Shadowfast in Warhammer Monthly and his own strip, Dogon, serialised on Instagram. Shuk and Doode represents his first continuing comic and was published immediately prior to his taking over Strontium Dog. All the tumultuous energy of line and explosive figure work can be found here in this important step in the development of a singular comic talent.

Newly scanned from original issues of Computer & Video Games Magazine, this collection contains all 18 pages of published comics plus a new interview with Harrison, an introduction by Dark & Golden’s Douglas Noble, contemporary letters, a bibliography and more.

The first 100 orders of Shuk & Doode come with two art cards of a cover and a poster that Harrison also contributed to Computer and Video Games Magazine.
