Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's.... London Underground Comics! - a short documentary which takes you into the weird and wonderful world of London's small press comic scene. The film focuses on a group of young comic creators who have been making big waves in the small press world. Their goal is to bring comics to the masses and armed with an arsenal of innovative material and using their stall in Camden Market as a base they start their bombardment on the general public. The film follows this team of gifted young people on their journey to the Eagle Awards in Bristol, where their comic 'Tales From The Flat' has been nominated for Best British Comic (Black & White). Will they get the recognition they so deserve? Will another bloody Manga snatch their trophy? Tune in to find out! London Underground Comics is a story about passion, dedication and a love for men in spandex.
