Barmy Comics from Barrow

The Immeasurable Adventures of Gorky Park by Dave HughesComics creator Dave Hughes, who lives in Barrow, has just sent me a hilarious collection of his comic strip tales titled The Immeasurable adventures of Gorky Park. Dave’s strange, spikey cartoon work, akin to Rugrats on acid, tells the bizarre story of a Russian chess genius forced to flee to the UK after farting during a tournament.

The comic is crammed with both visual and word gags (right down to the indicia which claims any spelling mistakes are intentional and therefore ironic).

A rcommended read, available from Dave Hughes, price £3. Send cheques payable to Dave Hughes for £3 to Stonechat Productions, PO Box 148, Barrow-in-Furness LA14 3WX.
