Behold, Simon Pegg as you’ve never seen him before! Marvel as his superhero alter-ego traverses the continents in his customized Pegg Jet. His mission: to prevent the destruction of all life on earth.
A hilarious and brilliantly crafted graphic novel featuring the escapades of Simon Pegg, a ruggedly handsome superhero (with a body a bit like Brad Pitt’s from Fight Club and an almost constant thirst for Coke Zero) and his ever faithful robotic manservant, Canterbury, as they fight to stop the world from exploding. Will they get to Hendon in time to stop evil criminal Lord Black from carrying out his plan to fire his ancient Egyptian laser beam into the sun? Will Simon finally capture the heart of flame haired French cat burglar, The Scarlet Panther? And, perhaps most importantly, will Canterbury manage to provide appropriate refreshments for all visiting guests/informants? There’s only one way to find out …
‘An absolute cracker’
‘It’s like a Pegg fan’s wet dream in app form’
‘It's beautifully drawn, smoothly animated and all that nonsense but more than that, it's genuinely laugh out loud funny.’

What's New in Version 1.0.2
Wallpaper optimization for retina display.
I've read nerd do well and really enjoyed the gentlemen hero asides, this app however is pretty poor, the artwork isn't great which is a shame as you could really have gone to town on it, treating it seriously would have really brought the comedy in the writing into sharp relief. It misses the mark completely, and sorry to say it seems a bit like a cheap cash in. Not worthy of the pegg....skip to the end and don't bother.
loveeeeedddd simon pegg all my life and I'm 15! so impressed with this app love it! I could read it over and over again!
Does not work
Seems it's only any good if you've got an iphone4..
Which I don't.
Really think they should say that before people buy.
