The near future. Scotland has been left decimated by a plague that has swept the country. The scattered population struggle to survive from day to day. And the blame for this pandemic falls squarely on ‘witches’ - seemingly ordinary people with extra-ordinary powers- who are hunted down and forced to stand trial by government sanctioned witch-hunters.
Thomas Mackie is one such witch-hunter and, alongside his dog Dex, he hunts down witches in order to save enough money and buy his way to a better life in one of the exclusive luxury apartment blocks, an oasis from the poverty and devastation. But things take an unexpected turn when Mackie’s latest target- a witch called Miranda Lee- blackmails him into helping her act out a dangerous plot to cure the plague, once and for all.
Written by Gary Chudleigh with art from Tanya Roberts (Star Wars : The Clone Wars, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), this trade paper back collects the first three issues with bonus material.
“I can’t stress how good this comic is”- Big Comic Page
“humour, wit and an endearing charm”- Geekverse.com
“a damn fine little book, knowingly lightweight, playing with the ideas of a comedy drama with a sci-fi theme and doing it all so very well” - Forbidden Planet
“The combination of Chudleigh’s story and Roberts’ art make for a real winner of a comic, as fun to read as it is to look at. Plagued: The Miranda Chronicles is a fine all-ages book that really is a delight to all ages.” - bagandbored.net
