Exclusive: Return to Whipsnarl with ‘Beast Wagon’ #2 [Preview]

Beast Wagon #2


One year on from the launch of the British Comic Award-nominated black comedy Beast Wagon from writer Owen Michael Johnson (Raygun Roads, Reel Love), illustrator John Pearson, and letterer Colin Bell (Curb Stomp, The Fiction, And Then Emily Was Gone), the second chapter will debut at this year’s Thought Bubble festival in Leeds, continuing the story’s spiral into anthropomorphic madness.

Writer Johnson has called the book One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest meets Watership Down, and when we spoke to the Beast boys earlier this year, he further described the series as follows; “Beast Wagon is a jet black comedy set in a fictional zoo called Whipsnarl over the course of one business day during a summer heatwave. A new arrival, who seems to have some special significance, sets off a primal disturbance in the animal population. From there things get stranger…”

In issue #2, things get really strange, as the primates scheme against a children’s entertainer whose monkey suit has caused a grave offence. Check out the preview pages below:
