Mugged Off: The New Webcomic from
Working on SFX– the galaxy’s greatest sci-fi and fantasy magazine – is obviously a lot of fun, but it’s also hard work, fueled by an awful lot of coffee.
But even the tastiest cup of coffee can be forgotten in a crisis (or a deadline). Mugged Off,’s new webcomic, explores the trials and tribulations of Huck, a sentient cup of mouldy coffee, and his life in the offices of SFX.
With superb artwork by rising star of the Irish comics scene John Cullen and written by SFX’s Rob Power, Mugged Offis a journey into the bizarre world of Huck as he deals with deadlines, terrible puns and an overwhelming love of biscuits.
You’ll never look at your tasty hot beverage in the same way again. Probably.
Mugged Off will be posted every Tuesday at

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
