Jonny Cannon has finally come to the end of his epic saga of superheroes, corruption and the failed state which is Britain today. The United (and sometimes The Divided) took us from the tower blocks of Glasgow to the Tower of London with many a twist and turn on the way.

Now the last issue wraps up the series and will be released as a Kickstarter – with a 228 page hardcover book containing all the issues of The United released to date along with a brand new monster 78 page closing episode. The book will have the zeitgeist invoking title The United – Welcome to the Shitshow.

Current plans are for the Kickstarter to launch in October so keep ’em peeled. Reward tiers will include original art, commissions and prints. There are also some amazing pin-ups from some well known artists included in the book. I have been lucky enough to get a preview of them and they are quite something. Added to that there are text features and a foreword by some Scottish comics blogger, oh it’s me.

Meanwhile check out a couple of early release images from the new book.
