Oh, Yes! It’s Psycho Gran versus…. again!

David Leach launches his latest volume of Psycho Gran versus… at Dublin Comic Con this weekend – and Volume 3 is just as bonkers as the first two books, and includes as “Guest Gallery” featuring art by Rick Parker, Roger Langridge, Nigel Parkinson and Liam Sharp.

Psycho Gran versus - Round 3 by David Leach

Psycho Gran Versus, like all other Psycho Gran titles, is published by Aylesbury comic shop impresario Ian Hine, owner of Dead Universe Comics and once again sees the matriarchal menace beating up various comic book and movie characters.

Be warned, the nature of David’s humour (and the sheer devilry of Psycho Gran) leads me to warn you that if you’re a fan of Baby Yoda or SpongeBob Squarepants, you may find this collection of cartoons, including a double-sided-pin-up, upsetting… but it is very funny, so why not risk it. Here’s just a few examples!

Back Panther, Godzilla, Thor and more get it in the neck, or more sensitive place, too from Psycho Gran, who as regular reader know, regularly also appears in David Lloyd’s digital anthology, Aces Weekly.
