Presented as a facsimile of one of Oscar’s scrapbooks from 1975, this intriguing-looking comic features established small-press comics in newspaper strip form including David Goodman’s Catgirl Crisis Comics, Andrew Cheverton and Tim Keable’s West, John Maybury’s Space Babe 113 and and Colin Stanford’s Run Pussy. Each strip tells its own story whilst contributing to the overall meta-story created by John Maybury.
