Rebellion Publishing montage - 25th November 2019Out this week from Rebellion Publishing is the latest issue of 2000 AD, with a great “Tharg” cover by Rob Davis, plus two new comic collections, including Ken Reid‘s wonderful, spectacularly bonkers World-Wide Weirdies.

World-Wide Weirdies by Ken Reid

The latter is definitely one any British comic fan should be demanding as a Christmas present, with its utterly crazy assemblage of some of Reid’s deliciously demented drawings from the 1970s humour comics Whoopee and Shiver and Shake. There really should be a full t-shirt range!
