Reviews

Rocket-paced, spectacular, absorbing and utterly hilarious, this uncanny adventure is conceived and rendered in a gorgeous, loving pastiche of the magnificent style of Goscinny and Uderzo, a kind of Asterix in the Underworld meets Eric the Viking. Fast, fun and funny, Long Gone Don is a superb serving of macabre mirth no lovers of daft or dark delights can afford to miss. - Now Read This!

- Forbidden Planet International; It is so good! The story has traditional tropes mixed with surreal elements, creating a wicked amalgamation of content that both kids and adults will enjoy - It's so accessible that kids will enjoy the colours and visual personality on display, they'll engage with this wonderful piece of imagination. - Utter Biblio

About the Author

Lorenzo Etherington was raised on the three great pillars of comics - Dan Dare, Asterix and Calvin and Hobbes. His childhood was spent surrounded by sheets of drawing paper on which he and his brother Robin travelled to countless imagined worlds. He's very pleased to report that his adult life is being spent in much the same way. Robin Etherington has been writing original comic book material since 2003, together with his brother Lorenzo, the Etherington Brothers are the creative team behind the DFB's adventure books, Monkey Nuts and Baggage. Robin has also produced comic stories for 'Transformers', 'Star Wars', 'The Terminator' and 'Wallace and Gromit', among many others. Currently he is working on a huge heap of exciting projects, including the Etherington Brothers' latest graphic series, Long Gone Don for the Phoenix comic. FACT: Robin really wants to learn how to surf but apparently needs to learn how to swim first ... why?
