Ages ago, possibly even on this blog, I raved about Beaver and Steve, an online strip from the superbly talented James Turner (a fellow 20sixer, he of Erudite Baboon).
Anyway, he’s only gone and had many of the strips collected by Soaring Penguin, and published in a real full colour book. And it’s superb, very funny and well worth the £7.95 cover price.
Check out the web site and then buy the book. You won’t be sorry. (Well, maybe you will, but that’s you’re own fault for trusting my erratic judgment about such things)…
Or, simply follow this Amazon.co.uk link and buy it asap…
