Roy of the Rovers: The Best of the 1980s
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.
