About the Author

Mark Russell is the GLAAD and Eisner Award-winning writer behind The Flintstones, Second Coming, Billionaire Island, Superman: Space Age and Batman: Dark Age, as well as many other comic book series. He is also the author of two books.

STEVE PUGH is a British artist and sometimes writer, born and based in the Midlands of England. Recruited for DC's Vertigo imprint at its inception, he worked on titles including Hellblazer, Animal Man, and Preacher: Saint of Killers. Later, he wrote and illustrated Hotwire for Radical Comics and received Eisner nominations for his art on the critically acclaimed reimaginings of The Flintstones and Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass.

Reviews

"Mark Russell plays with that line [between caricature and reality] and gives his characters enough eccentricity to keep them a hair's width from completely recognizable in our current landscape. ... Steve has done a fantastic job here with filling each panel with energy and the sense of surreal in a world going/gone insane. Have a look at the eyes of some of the characters and you can sense just how far gone they are. ...That attention to detail makes the world seem so real in such a scary scary way. ... An interesting story that might just give you a few tears of joy among those tears of nihilistic dread." - IMPULSE GAMER

"Mark Russell, Steve Pugh & Chris Chuckry are precisely the kind of creative team that ought to reconvene every few years to utterly pants modern society. Luckily for you (and me) the Eisner-nominated team behind DC's The Flintstones have done exactly that with BILLIONAIRE ISLAND, AHOY Comics' satirical dressing-down of our current malaise, focusing primarily on influencer culture and pin-headed billionaire worship. Each page has a joke on it, which I'm pretty sure is Rule #1 in the Funny Book Commandments. However. That the team bothers to put this much oomph into these gags makes each successive issue of BILLIONAIRE ISLAND feel incredibly special." - DOOM ROCKET

"Mark Russell has proved himself to be the master of serial comics satire and social commentary of his generation ... it's going to get readers talking every bit as much as Second Coming. One not to miss from Ahoy Comics!" - BROKEN FRONTIER

"[Russell's] characters are more developed and complex than the average parody... there is bite, but also heart. Pugh's art only serves to enhance this dynamic. ... But BILLIONAIRE ISLAND is unique amongst Russell's satiric output in that the world seems to be adapting to it, increasing the comic's prescience while offering an even more personal look into the new normal." - PANEL PATTER

"The scariest book on the shelves today... This book is not for the faint of heart. It is certainly not for the #fakenews crowd. It will make you uncomfortable; it will force you to look inward and outward. But most importantly, and a measuring stick I gauge a book's merit on, this book will stick with you long after reading it." - COMIC WATCH

"This book continues to be one of the most clever satires of 2020 wealth disparity issues in any medium, and it's a book not to be missed." - COMICS BOOKCASE
