New Book – The Light By Jim Alexander

Cover by Alex Ronald

The Light is a new book by Jim (Good Cop, Bad Cop) Alexander and he sent me the press release for the new work:

The book explores a world where you wake up and know this is the day you die. How would such a world shape the way we think, our views on each other and society, how we conduct our personal and financial affairs; how we live and how we will die?

This is Alexander’s second novel after the award-winning GoodCopBadCop.


More on ‘the Light’:

On a daily basis, people are required to take the Light; a device that ascertains whether this will be their last day. The story alternates between showcasing and building up this new world and telling the story of an ordinary person having to cope in extraordinary circumstances. We will see through his eyes a world so achingly similar to our own, but different in one shattering, all-pervasive way.

When approaching death, whether it’s dying in your sleep or experiencing your whole life flashing in front of your eyes, in the end it is no longer a case of floating towards the light. The Light wants to find you first.


Alexander has not finished with comics. He is one of the writers on a new Marvel Graphic Novel, Uncanny Origins: Myths and Magic. He writes ‘The Song of Storm’ where we discover how a girl worshipped as a goddess became a wind-riding hero.

GoodCopBadCop is available now at Amazon, Amazon UK, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Etsy, and lots of other places.

Uncanny Origins: Myths and Magic is published by Marvel and out on 31st December 2019.
