Here is another volume in the series and this one is slightly different. The main three characters of Tozzer, Hornie and Rod return. The main plot is a parody of the TV series 24, with a little bit of the game/ film Hitman. It works well enough but doesn’t have the breadth of the first volume. It is amusing rather than funny in the same way that a Tom & Jerry cartoon is.
The artwork still has the same high standard. The format has changed however and the book shares the same dimensions as a postcard being wider than tall. This neither improves nor distracts from the delivery but does mean it won’t line up on your bookshelf with the others. A good try but neither Thumbs Up or Down.
