    1. Wow, this really shows the diversity of the writer Pat Mills After being a fan of Slaine and ABC warriors etc this is something else Sick and twisted, everything you would expect from a serial killer something you re not telling us Pat Without a doubt Pat uses his own life experience in this as we learn of the exploits of the Caning Commando which takes us back to 50s 60s 70s children s English comic book era Not being from that era I wasn t sure what was real and what was not I was left thinkin [...]


    2. Fantastic read,darkly funny,the beginning reminded me so much of my childhood and the dank,dark corner shop I used to get sent to,to pick up mams cigs Well worthy of a place on any shelfd a must for any 2000AD fan Read it and Weep.with joy.


    3. If, like me, you grew up reading the likes of the Beano, Dandy etc or just have any interest in comics in general this is a must read Mills and O Neill use their experience of the industry to craft the darkly funny fictional account of Dave Maudling, a deeply troubled man who edits the comic The Spanker but hates the readers so puts dangerous scenarios into the stories in the hopes that the kids will copy them and end up killing themselves or others Highly recommended and looking forward to the [...]


    4. A darkly funny murder mystery set in a comic publishing company in the 70s It s an engrossing and funny novel with some well drawn characters Apparently it s a roman a clef based on the authors experience working on comics in the 70s If that s true and with the bizarre sequences in the novel I worry for the authors

    6. This is a darkly funny tale of murder, intrigue, sexual deviancy and comic publishing, set in the dark times that were the 1970 s I m imagining that when Pat Mills and Kevin O Neill wrote this they took the old saw write what you know a little too literally but it works brilliantly.


    7. I liked this book very much, it has a great sense of humor and some of the situations and anecdotes described are so bizarre that I was amazed by the writing I also liked the stories inside the stories , with such weird characters like The Caning Commando The main character, Dave is so irritating and despicable that it turns out to be one of the most memorable characters that I ve read recently I also admired the way the writer s concise way to tell the story, with every detail being important, [...]
