' Creators of dark, sarcastic comic mag, Velocity, from the late 80s to the mid 90s, Gary and Warren Pleece have made a mark that can’t quite come out of the dish-cloth comics map of Britain. ' That's a self-penned quote from the two excellent guys who are our guests at our next Cartoon County meeting on Monday, 26th September, from 6 onward, upstairs at The Cricketers, Black Lion St, Brighton. They'll be talking for podcast about their new collection of past material,The Great Unwashed - blurb below - and showing some pages of it, plus stuff from Montague Terrace, and much more, and talking generally about their work from 7.30. Do not miss it!
The Great Unwashed by Gary and Warren Pleece, a new anthology coming out soon from Paul Gravett's Escape Books, collects some of the best early material from the Pleece Brothers' dark, sarcastic comic magazine, Velocity, through to the washed out water-coloured tales for magazines like Crisis and Revolver.
Re-discover or be introduced to noirish stories of failed comedians, self-indulgent rock stars, dysfunctional double acts and not forgetting an excessive dose of Pig Custard. A must!
