This review is from: Team Cul de Sac: Cartoonists Draw the Line at Parkinson's (Hardcover)
Richard Thompson is a comic who tells a story about an average family. What makes this strip remarkable is in the empathy he has for these people. Cul De Sac is a wonderful strip. Team Cul De Sac is a chance for Mr Thompson's contemporaries to pay tribute to the comic and raise money for a good cause. We have seen tributes slipped into strips before such as Patrick McDonnel inserting the Peanuts characters in a museum looking at a painting while Linus is Looking at the image of Earl the dog. This time it is a dedicated panel where the artist draws Cul De Sac characters into their own strip or medium. Alice, her brother Pety and their long suffering parents have a complete makeover in the hands of other artists. It is a wonderful tribute and a great way to be introduces to new artists.
