Reviews

"Whacky, near the bone excess."

SPEAKEASY

 

"Exceedingly bizarre and violent. Sure to leave a lot of people most uneasy."

FACT SHEET FIVE

 

"I'm about to leave this dead country (England), so I've been reading the literary issue of Meng & Ecker's comic. I don't know whether I'm in it, probably am, sliced up. But it's brilliant. I love it."

KATHY ACKER

 

"This comic could be read—and possibly gloated over—by people who enjoyed viciousness and violence. It had pictures that would be repulsive to right-thinking people...It is luridly bound and it is more likely (than novels, etc,) to attract attention from the less literate."

JUDGE GERARD HUMPHRIES,
presiding at the Trial of Lord Horror and Meng & Ecker,
Crown Court, Manchester, England, 30th July 1992

 

"Savoy's new comic titles make Grant Morrison's New Adventures of Hitler seem as shocking as The Beano. They are unlike anything that's so far come out of British independent comics."

JIM McLELLAN, i-D

 

"Meng & Ecker take comic art into new and sicker realms of weirdness."

SANDY ROBERTSON, Penthouse

 

"In order to stop this disgusting material being sold I have written to the police enclosing the comics in question. I am surprised that bookshops stock these publications on the shelves."

GEOFFREY DICKENS, JP, Tory MP 16th Aug 1989

 

"Crap through and through. Cash-in shlock."

FIONA JEROME, Ark

 

"Britton is a scriptwriting genius. It is a testament to his writing that a strip so outwardly racist, bigoted and homophobic, becomes none of these things."

DEL ROONEY, Battleground

 

"There is no easy or, adequate way, to describe Meng & Ecker. Each issue is an experience. It is the only comic that I can legitimately say that I can look forward to reading, if only because it is the one book that you cannot approach with expectation...First you must forget everything you have ever known, or thought you knew, about comic books, graphic novels, whatever. You must approach these pages with eyes and mind wide open, and with a certain amount of nerve or, better yet, humour. If not, you will find exactly what the Great Manchester Police Department would like you to find."

DOUGLAS E WINTER

 

"Dangerously disarming. Each issue seems to wind in and out of a timeless realm of metamorphic incident."

D M MITCHELL, Rapid Eye 2 (1995 edition)

 

"No other comic is so good at being so bad."

RUSS KICK, Psychotropedia
