Roy of the Rovers: The Best of the 1980s

Released 9th Jun 2021

 All the best Roy of the Rovers stories from the 1980s, collected in one gorgeous hardback!

The dawn of the 80s was one that Melchester Rovers would’ve wanted to forget, with the threat of relegation and exits from the F.A and European Cup leaving the trophy cabinet bare.

For star striker Roy Race it couldn’t have been worse. His obsession with the team caused a strain on his marriage, fractured his relationship with team-mates, and culminated with the shocking (and iconic) attempt on his life…

After being shot in 1981, Roy lay in a coma for several weeks, and none other than Sir Alf Ramsey stepped into the dugout for Melchester. While life in a lower division beckoned, at least the Rovers looked stylish in those fancy new Gola kits!

Featuring one of the most dramatic and well-known story arcs to ever appear in British comics, The Best of the 80s: Who Shot Roy Race is full of iconic drama that generations of football fans have come to expect of Roy of the Rovers.
