This Wednesday, Last Gang in Town #4, written by Simon Oliver with Rufus Dayglo on art, hits newsstands, following the continuing story of Londoners who hope to throw a monkey wrench in the Queen’s Silver Jubilee celebration as a middle finger to government tyranny. Check out these exclusive preview pages that DC Comics/Vertigo was kind enough to share!
Oliver is no stranger to Vertigo, with The Exterminators and Hellblazer, and his ability to pace stories that veer from the ordinary is phenomenal to behold. However, as nimble as he is at pacing a story, Oliver’s authentic dialogue and character-building keep me returning to his work again and again. Dayglo’s art marries beautifully to Oliver’s wordsmithery, designing characters and locales that have a dynamism that prevent the reader from ever becoming bored or complacent.

From the official issue description:
Now that the gang has passed their first tests and sewn the seeds of sedition among the London populace, it’s time to disrupt the Queen’s Silver Jubilee good and proper. Back in 1977, the streets will shake and the whole of England will be upended by their scheme, but what kind of implications will that have for our thieves in the present day?
