new from ace comics creator Gary (Derek the sheep, Julius Zebra, Gary's garden, Teenytinysaurs) Northfield is news that he has now become a comics publisher as well!
He has just published "Sgt Chip Charlton and Mister Woofles" strip (Jim Medway draws and scripts) which has been collected together from the pages of the Phoenix comic, and is now available to buy courtesy of Gary's new imprint Bog Eyed books. If you've never read the Phoenix, here's the concept...
Scared of horses but driven to fight crime and seek justice?
What is a young Canadian to do?
Chip Charlton joins the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, picking his daschund buddy over the conventional equine sidekick. Sgt Chip soon proves the naysayers wrong, and time after time, crime after crime, demonstrates how even a weak stomach* is no obstacle to following your dream.
*Mister Woofles has the weakest stomach in comics and is always being sick
