Pat Mills is a punk … he has always written outrageously violent, scabrously satirical and often hilariously funny attacks on authority and the establishment.”

 

Jonathan Ross

 

“A JOYOUS RIDE.”

 

 

“Just finished this twisted, very funny novel – 1st in a series by Pat Mills and Kevin O’Neill. Brilliant skewering of 1970s kids’ comics.”

The 1970s were a dangerous time for kids.

With Dave at work, it’s a more dangerous time for the adults who harm them.

Happily chewing his liquorice pipe and plotting evil, Dave is a comic book editor with mischief on his mind. He adds lethal info to his stories, and his readers act on it. So far – so gruesome.

But then his femme fatale mother starts nagging him to solve her murder. She’s definitely dead, but is she really a figment of his imagination?

Is Dave victim, villain … or vigilante? Can he find his mother’s killer? And how many adults can his readers knock off before Dave finds himself in the firing line?

All the joy of a box set binge of your favourite sitcom wrapped up in a funny book.

Amazon Reviewer

This is a book with teeth, it will flick you in the balls with a towel and get off with your girlfriend behind your back. It is full of nuanced speech and setting, full of energy and cunning and most of all you will devour it and ask where the next serving is coming from.

Quite a few times I’d start laughing my head off reading this in the kitchen and my daughters would want to know what was so funny.
