Gary's Garden by Gary Northfield

Ah bliss! Gary is chilling in his Garden. But wait!! Look CLOSER! Look what's happening right under Gary's NOSE...Grumpy Caterpillars! Space travelling ladybirds! Ninja Hedgehogs! PARP! What was that? An insect orchestra - wow! HAHAHA! And what's that? It's all the laughter coming out of GARY'S GARDEN - why don't you come and see?


Without a doubt one of the best comic books I've ever read...Every one of these stories is utterly brilliant and made me laugh, though of course the whole book is a bit genius! 10/10 - Wondrous Reads

All the way through Gary's Garden there's manic invention running riot, rampant silliness, ridiculous characters and magnificently farcical setups. Fabulous book. - Forbidden Planet International
