Our first book is a remastered reprint of Gary Northfield's Derek the sheep. Derek was the first ever creator owned comic strip to appear in the Beano, and featured in the iconic British comic for six years.
This first volume in a series of three, this book includes original strips from the first year that Derek appeared.

Bog Eyed Books have been beavering away behind the scenes to find a distribution company to work with.
Up until now, we have been very lucky to work with some very supportive independent bookshops who have agreed to sell our wares (we love you all!). But in our bid to take the book publishing world by storm we are taking the plunge and expanding!
We are very excited to be working with Turnaround.
We are very excited to announce that our next book will be another masterpiece from The Pheonix!
Useleus by the marvellous Alexander Matthews and Wilbur Dawbarn will be published in Spring 2017.
Definitely one not to be missed!
We are excited to be attending the London Book Fair this March. This will be our first time as a publisher..... exciting!
Looking forward to meeting everyone and making new contacts. If you spot us wandering around, please come and say hello!
A great night was had by all at Gosh! Comics, celebrating the launch of Jim's amazing book.
Great to be joined by Alex Milway, Sarah McIntyre (who's photos we've pinched!) and Kenny Penman, who all came along to support us. If you missed it, fear not, we are sure to be holding other events soon.
Jim has some amazing prints from the book which are available to buy on his website.
We are extremely excited to announce that Bog Eyed Books will be publishing a Phoenix Comic's favourite "Sgt. Chip Charlton and Mister Woofles of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police" by Jim Medway, in early November 2016.
This is a real treat!
We had a wonderful weekend at MCM at London's Excel centre. This was our first outing as Bog Eyed Books and it was great to see the reaction to our first book, Derek the Sheep, with lots of people laughing at the name alone!
There are also a lot more Derek's in the world than we had ever realised too!
We were lucky to ber helped by our lovely assistant
Megan Haly who helped set up the stall, sell books and make lots of lovely badges!
Thank you Megan!
