Here are some reviews of older comics that I enjoyed no end.

The Smell of The Wild - Gareth Brookes

This is my favourite of the Gareth Brookes comics I've read (he also does the Man Man comics). It is a selection of wondrous poems about the beauties of nature accompanied by drawings of wildlife and flowers, here's an example-

On Beholding a Number of Tits

The blue tit hides itself in bracken
In every way unlike the kraken
It makes a summer day complete
To hear their pointy beaks go tweet

Ah, i like this a lot. My eye was first drawn to it by the fancy printed cover, looking a bit like it was made with a potato print. I am always a sucker for comedy poetry, me.

appalling nonsense
