My pre-ordered copy of Adam Murphy’s splendid Corpse Talk Season 1 arrived this morning. On the inside cover is a “doodle” by Murphy of dead George Orwell, which is - as you’d expect - a smile-inspiring joy. (“Doodle” really does seem too small a word.) You can order this collection of strips from The Phoenix direct from the book’s creator here, and, as you’ll guess, I’d heartily recommend doing so.
