In Preview - ‘CYDO’ from John Tucker.


Created by John Tucker.

A2 - Full Colour - £1.00

With books like ‘Plan A/Plan B’ (a flip-book with interlocking stories) and ‘Adrift’ (a partly erotic illustrated poem like tale) artist/writer John Tucker plays with both format and content. He continues to twist the concepts of comic presentation as well as what you might expect from a comics story.

CYDO (pronounced ‘SIGH-dough’) continues with this experimental edge in that it is a one sheet comic of A2 size with the above gorgeously rendered image on one side and on it’s rear a tale of freedom, love, fate and genitals.

What this new project has in common with John’s other work is it’s darkly humorous subject matter and narrative twists and turns. Trust me, this is another weirdly hilarious incident! I refuse point blank to spoil!

That front cover is surely worth the price on it’s own!

I will say no more about it other than that it can be bought from him at one of his glamorous convention appearances, it’ll come rolled in a cardboard tube and it’s not exactly what you might expect.

CYDO will be launching at Glasgow Comic Con on June 29th, 2019.
