The United were supposed to be the UK’s top super-team. Then, in 1996, several of their members went rogue and tried to overthrow the government. By the new millennium the United has been disbanded.

In 2013 the United was put together again with a new set of heroes; a political stunt in the run-up to the referendum on Scottish Independence. The only problem is, these are NOT the best of the best, but simply the most popular and best-known…







In the shadows, meanwhile, old enemies and politicians alike plot the demise of the team. But, to what end?
As well as the online strip there are print copies! The United issues 1 to 4 are currently available at several retailers in Glasgow: Forbidden Planet, Geek-a-boo, A1 Toys & Comics and Waterstones. Issues are £2 each with three episodes of The United per issue. Space Rats is the bonus back-up strip in issues 3 and 4.
If your comic shop doesn’t stock our comics and you’d like them to, or you’re an interested retailer, please email me at and I will speak with the necessary folks.
