David tells us, “the title Dump serves as a description of the book – a collection place for different comics I’ve done; and as the name of the main story, whose main character works in a council dump.”
As well as the main “Dump” story, the 60 page book also includes “Hey Joe..?” about a driver trying to remember the name of an actor, “History of E-Mail and the Internet” which ‘does what it says on the tin’ in only 4 pages, and the autobiographical 24 Hour comic “Everything”. Each of these are written and drawn by David, but the collection also includes five different one page stories written by David and illustrated by a selection of other artists – “Dream Of Being You” by Stephen Boyd, “Why I Vote” by Damon Herd, “Coleslaw” by Donna Law, “Cycling Through Freedom” by Neil Paterson, and “Yay! Party!” by Keara Stewart.
