Absurdica – The People by Karl Kiddie, with drawings by Tom Morris (£6.99) – “Have you ever met a person made from Ash? Is there someone in your family with ball-shaped hands? Do you have a man made from sweets living in your street? Have you heard of a person so preoccupied with other things that they forgot to die? Ever seen a girl that is covered in tongues? What about someone who carries days in a packet? No, you haven’t. Not yet.
“Come with Karl and Tom to Absurdica! Here you will be introduced to these people and many more unique individuals who are dying to meet you, but beware some are very friendly… some are not.
“Absurdica. A world parallel to yours. A world just out of your reach, just out of your sight, but all around you.”
