Yesterday's Tomorrows

Jealous? You should be, if you don't own this book. Now that Summer's over, and the nights are drawing in, you could do worse than pick up a copy, for £25 (probably cheaper on Amazon), or £35 for the deluxe slipcased limited edition, with art prints (exclusive to Forbidden Planet International, discounted to £24.50 at time of writing).

As you'd expect from Rian Hughes, the book design is lovely, with striking embossed hardback covers, and gorgeous paper stock throughout.

The collection contains a mixed selection of works, including hard to find stories from a selection of small publishers, plus the meat of the book, the collaborations with Grant Morrison, Really and Truly from 2000ad, and the controversial Dare from Revolver/Crisis. Also included are some preliminary sketches, promotional images, and more.

Hughes' deceptively simple style reveals so much detail on closer inspection, he really is underrated, and it's about time that changed. Start the ball rolling by picking up a copy yourself!
