The indy/self-published world of comics has been solid source of top titles for the Comics Anonymous gang and in particular the Glasgow scene where some amazing work is on offer. Mostly we get the chance to read something different and that’s what we get with Flakes: Volume One from Surreality Comics.
It’s not your standard superhero title or even your bog-standard comic book – instead we get a comic strip with a whole series of individual strips poking fun at the world and telling some surreal tales featuring snowmen – all with an interesting perspective on life and a cracking running commentary by creator George Bell.
Some quirky, darkly fun characters and some crazy situations throughout – all with a hint of that “Gary Larson” type approach to humour with a quick gag and image proving just as effective as a full page of text – could be my dark sense of humour but I’m sure there are lots of other people out there that will get a kick out of this. Kudos to George for both the art and ideas on that one.

Also worth heading along to the next Glasgow Comic Mart – they’ll be there and you can pick up some of their titles:
