As if being an awkward, bullied 15-year-old weren’t enough, suddenly “Fergie” Ferguson can see ghosts. Well, one ghost specifically…a certain punk rocker named Sid.

Sid’s spirit had been trapped in London’s Heathrow Airport for forty years, until the day he met Fergie. Sid’s ghost is now stuck to Fergie—as if Fergie doesn’t have enough on his plate, being raised by a single mum whose idea of parenting is strictly fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants. Now Fergie has to contend with an unruly ghost sidekick and some weird, uncontrollable new “abilities.” How does the father Fergie never knew fit into all this? And why is the Department of Extra-Usual Affairs showing an interest? Never Mind the Bollocks—all of this plus fish fingers, chunky chips and endless pints of anarchy in the new ongoing series PUNKS NOT DEAD!
