A new graphic novel from Declan Shalvey, Philip Barrett and Jordie Bellaire.

About Savage Town

In Limerick City, Jimmy “Hardy” Savage is a gangster on the rise, facing trouble from all sides.

With the local cops, rival gangs, his best mate, and his mammy all out to stick a knife in him, will the bollocks live long enough to get to the top? More importantly, will he pay me back for that fiver I gave him last week?

From the savage minds of Declan Shalvey (All-Star Batman, INJECTION), Philip Barrett, and Jordie Bellaire (Vision, THEY’RE NOT LIKE US) comes an original Irish graphic crime novel that’ll leave you gaspin’…for a pint!

The Creators


Thinks he’s some fancy pants because he’s drawing a critically acclaimed graphic novel series called INJECTION with Warren Ellis. He’s also drawn MOON KNIGHT, DEADPOOL and ALL STAR BATMAN and thinks he’s a big deal now because he’s writing DEADPOOL VS OLD MAN LOGAN. What a gobshite.


Philip Barrett is a comic artist, illustrator, live-drawer and a total legend to boot. He’s been self-publishing his comic Matter since 2001, that’s like before the internet and everything! He’s also illustrated the book series ‘WHERE’S LARRY?’ which is gas craic.


Jordie Bellaire is a two-timer Eisner winning colourist for acclaimed projects such as VISION, THEY’RE NOT LIKE US, PRETTY DEADLY, INJECTION,  AUTUMNLANDS etc as well all mainstream hits like BATMAN, SPIDER-MAN, DEADPOOL, MOON KNIGHT and HAWKEYE. She is also the writer/co-creator of REDLANDS. Christ, that’s a lot of comics, isn’t it?


Clayton Cowles is the letterer of books like THE WICKED + THE DIVINE, BITCH PLANET, BATMAN, VISION, STAR WARS and REDLANDS. Christ knows how he lettered all the nonsense in this book, fair play to him like.


Emma Price  is a freelance graphic designer from… ugh, England. She has weaved her designy magic for books like CRY HAVOC and ANGELIC.

Sebastian Girner

Sebastian Girner is a freelance comic book editor, (whatever that’s supposed to mean) for books like DEADLY CLASS, SOUTHERN BASTARDS and THE GODDAMNED. He’s also the writer/co-creator of SCALES & SCOUNDRELS and co-writer/co-creator of SHIRTLESS BEAR-FIGHER! Jaysus, is everyone on this book a bloody writer all of a sudden!?
