An absolute gem. With its eclectic collection of characters and absurdist humour that reminds me of the work of Glen Dakin and James Turner, Derek the Sheep is a wonderful invention. Its success is well deserved.
Bog Eyed Books brings you the very best Derek The Sheep stories from Gary Northfield’s archives.
Between 2004 and 2011 Gary Northfield created over 60 Derek the Sheep stories for British children’s comic The Beano. Many have not seen the light of day since their original fleeting appearances in the famous weekly comic.
Re-coloured and remastered, these splendid collections will be treasured for years to come.
Gary Northfield has been writing and drawing comics since 2002. He has regularly worked for esteemed magazines such as The Beano, The Phoenix, National Geographic Kids and The Dandy. He has also had books published, including The Terrible Tales of The Teenytinysaurs (Walker 2013), Gary’s Garden (David Fickling 2014), Julius Zebra: Rumble With The Romans (Walker 2015) and Julius Zebra: Bundle With The Britons (Walker 2016).
