Welcome to Manchester s Canal Street, and the End of the Rainbow. For the first time in print, this omnibus collects the first 74 issues of a quirky webcomic set in an LGBT bookstore on Canal Street, in Manchester, England. Meet David, the excitable, welcoming owner of the bookshop, and his partner Max- a harried teacher trying to come out to his students-along with their ragtag band of friends and employees: Anna Valentine, the fabulous transsexual, Toby the bookish student, Ionie the asexual artist, Joseph the chubby chaser, Aoife the polysexual, polyamorous, poly-everything, and, of course, Puffin the bookshop cat. Documenting their lives, loves, losses, friendships and adventures in the vibrant world of Manchester s gay village, End of the Rainbow combines the styles of Dykes to Watch Out For and Queer as Folk to tell a diverse, joyful story with real heart. The omnibus includes never-before-seen stories, a guide to Canal Street and behind the scenes with the writer and illustrator. “
