After all the Roy Of The Rovers books due out from Titan in time for Christmas, Vision Sports Publishing of London have jumped on the bandwagon and released two football related graphic novels to compete with all those books on Melchester Rovers.
Liverpool! and United! cover the history of the two big English football clubs in comic strip format, written and illustrated by former Roy Of The Rovers artist Bob Bond. The hardback books cover the period from the formation of the clubs through to the end of the 2007/2008 season in 56 pages of colour artwork and are priced at £9.99 each.
Based on Amazon UK's current sales ranks Liverpool are well in the lead with Liverpool! at number 83,030 and United! at number 324,037.
Can Manchester pull back those Christmas sales before the full time whistle blows?
