Editorial Reviews


"Just finished this twisted, very funny novel - 1st in a series by Pat Mills and Kevin O'Neill."
Ian Rankin, Author
Inspector Rebus series

"Fans of Gene Hunt in the BBC's Life On Mars will dig the retro reminders of this sordid, sexist and yet somehow glorious decade - although be warned, you may not ever look at your childhood comics in the same way again. Savagely affectionate, written with the confident ease of a career storyteller, and very funny, just like 2000AD at its best."
Professor Will Brooker, Film and Cultural Studies, Kingston University, Author
Forever Stardust: David Bowie Across The Universe

"The smells, banter, prejudice and fear are authentic and bloody funny, as the post-war consensus is eclipsed by something far darker, restless and tearing at the bit to be born. I actually rocked with laughter this morning. Can't wait to read the next instalment and I'll be recommending it to everyone I know."
Tariq Goddard, Author
Nature and Necessity

"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."Antony Esmond, Reviewer

A selection of comments left by Amazon reviewers
"Dave? ah god I can't help myself, I think I'm in love with the fur-lovin' freak!"

"I read this book with a giant smile on my face from start to finish."

"Pat Mills and Kevin O'Neill are past masters at delivering pointed stabs at the dark under belly of society through satire, wit and parody and this tale is no exception."

"I'm not one for long reviews so I'll keep it short and sweet. Buy this book. I guarantee that that you once you finish it you will be aching for the sequel. Insane characters, a crazy plot and some real laugh out moments make this a sure fire winner. Pat and Kevin have struck gold with this one!!"

"I have found myself laughing out loud ( there are many parts of the book like that ) - its that good , its a while since I read a book that did this ( Bill Bryson was the last one ) for your information"

"You don't need to have lived through the 1970s or be a comic nerd to find this a gripping, hugely entertaining read, just having a pulse and a twisted (and occasionally wonderfully childish) sense of humour will do"

About the Author

PAT MILLS, famed as 'the Godfather of British comics', started his freelance career writing stories for Valiant, The Spanker, Everlasting Love, Shandy and Laarf! He went on to create 2000AD, featuring Judge Dredd, and wrote many of its key stories such as Judge Dredd, Slaine and Nemesis the Warlock. 

Subsequently, he co-created the anti-superhero character Marshal Law, with Kevin O'Neill, for Marvel Comics, and wrote the satirical French bestselling series Requiem Vampire Knight with art by Olivier Ledroit, now published by Editions Glenat.

His acclaimed anti-war series Charley's War, with artist Joe Colquhoun, has been the subject of major exhibitions in French war museums. He was made an honorary professor by Liverpool University for his contribution to popular culture. His comic book series Accident Man, co-created with Tony Skinner, is now a film starring Scott Adkins (Lucian in Marvel's Doctor Strange).
