The greatest football comic of all time returns! Foul Play, written by Rob Williams (Amazing Spider-Man, Star Wars, Judge Dredd), with art from Ben Willsher, is the second 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! With a stunning super-strike against premier English club Tynecaster, Roy Race announced himself to the footballing world. Melchester Rovers fans thought a saviour had arrived to lift them out of lowly League Two, and the agents came calling, sensing a new cash cow on the scene. But a lot of things can go wrong on a football pitch. Injuries can happen to anyone - even Roy of the Rovers. Is Roy's career over before it's even begun? Will he ever play in front of the Mel Park faithful again? And can Rovers make it to the playoff finals without him? The dramatic footballing adventure of Roy Race continues! "It has everything a football fan needs" - Books for Topics "Football-lovers will love the description of on-pitch action" - That Boy Can Teach "It captures the feel of playing and having a passion for football" - Comic Scene Magazine
