Severed Head (published soon in Omnibus form!)
Reborn into a New Dark Age, Bart Dickon, the ideologically-sound secret
agent, bursts once again onto a complacent world of mediocrity to
High Adventure and Derring-do to those astute enough to read of his
Drawing on the Ancient Egyptian myths of Isis and Osiris, the bandes
desinée of Tintin, Jock and Snowy, the high drama of Dixon of
Dock Green and the heroic works of the Reverend W.
our protagonist spends most of this epic tale "in corporeal desuetude",
i.e. as a bodyless head. The Odyssey pursues him from procreation, via
schooldays and an Apprenticeship In The University Of Life (i.e.
about spending Daddy's money), to his ultimate vocation as 'The English
Assassin', pith helmet-wearing conqueror of something-or-other and
spy in a world of wickedness and intrepidity.
A remarkable, sustained comic strip saga featuring the enigmatic
Bart Dickon. First to appear in Talking
Turkey magazine and later
in Sun Zoom Spark magazine
the ever-evolving story develops through
realities, gender-interchange and temporal fractures. You can

At last we're about to embark on a unique publishing project: the
production of the whole
piece as 'a proper book' at long last. Watch this space... (See also
Comix Archive for more material.)

redesigned to reflect the
