Premier League High: The Classic Football Comic! (Digital Edition)
Imagine if the world’s superstar footballers were unruly schoolboys and the managers were the frazzled teachers! That’s the premise of the hilarious comic strip by multiple award-winning cartoonist Steve McGarry.
When the legendary British soccer magazine SHOOT! was relaunched as a weekly in February, 2008 – after seven years of being published monthly – star cartoonist Steve McGarry was tapped to create a new football comic.
The result was fan-favourite Premier League High. Each week, football’s biggest stars – Beckham, Rooney, Ronaldo, Owen, Drogba, Tevez and more – were re-imagined as schoolboys and skewered by McGarry’s pen. Managerial greats, including Ferguson, Wenger, McClaren and Capello, were cast as the schoolmasters tasked with keeping the wayward pupils in check.
Sadly, SHOOT! ceased publication in August, 2008 … but the entire run of Premier League High and the classic comedy capers of the Class of 2008 are celebrated in this brilliant collection!
