Unlucky Eleven

Kick start the summer with The Unlucky Eleven, a hilarious fun-filled footy adventure written by lovely Hull City super fan Phil Earle and illustrated by madcap pencil maestro Steve May.

It’s GAME ON for the Saint’s football team but jinxed with ridiculous injuries, strange illnesses and cancelled games it seems as though everything’s going wrong this season, fortunately Stanley’s team-mates believe they finally know why. Their football kit is cursed!

The team’s attempts to break the curse take things from bad to worse. Stanley’s still got some tricks up his sleeve … but will his curse-cracking ideas save the team in time for the last game of the season?

Here are some of our favourite Steve May illustrations, we think you’ll agree they are packed with character and really bring this brilliant story to life.
