Knockabout Comics

Knockabout Comics is a UK-based publisher of the finest underground and alternative comics and graphic novels. Founded in its first incarnation in 1975 by Tony Bennett as a means to distribute Gilbert Shelton’s hippy-slacker masterwork The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, Knockabout has published noted British talents such as Alan Moore, Hunt Emerson, Eddie Campbell, Brian Bolland, Neil Gaiman, Dave McKean, Martin Rowson and many more – along with US creators such as Robert Crumb and Melinda Gebbie, and celebrated creators from Europe.

Tony Bennett, founder and managing director of Knockabout, when asked for a mission statement for the company, said: “We leverage core competencies in graphic continuity to optimize narrative experiences that add value across a scalable diversity of genre deliverables.” Having done the heavy lifting for the day he retired to the pub.
