The greatest football comic of all time returns! Kick-Off, written by Rob Williams (Amazing Spider-Man, Star Wars, Judge Dredd), with art from Ben Willsher, is the first awesome footy adventure in the new Roy of the Rovers series - read alone, or alongside the new Roy of the Rovers novels! The new era begins here! Times are tough for Melchester Rovers. Languishing at the bottom of League Two, the once-proud powerhouse of British football is out of money and out of luck. Sixteen year old Roy Race always dreamt of playing up front for Rovers. Oozing with natural talent and possessing a powerful left foot, Roy may just be the answer to all of Melchester's prayers. Can Roy break into the Rovers first team and bring back the glory days of old? Or will the pressure of problems on and off the pitch prove too much for the young prospect? The epic footballing saga begins here!
