a cartoon strip about stuff ...
By Andy Riley
The other side of bestselling Andy Riley - his dry and witty comic strip, set in a coffee shop.
'Their names are Karl, Lottie and Nev, and they work in a coffee shop. That's all you need to know. Actually, you don't even need to know their names that much; you just need to recognise the sort of people they are - the care-worn balding thirty-year-old, keenly aware he's on the final lap of his youth, the girl who frets about everything (but food in particular), and the chirpy big-eyed twat with one of those unfortunate faces that you just want to hit ...'
For five years, BUNNY SUICIDES author Andy Riley has delighted Observer Magazine readers with his dark and funny weekly strip - Roasted.
Now collected together for the first time, here are the ongoing adventures of three wasters in a coffee shop - making an essential guide to the modern world for fans and newcomers alike.
Andy Riley is the author/artist of the BUNNY SUICIDES books, GREAT LIES TO TELL SMALL KIDS, SELFISH PIGS, D.I.Y DENTISTRY, ROASTED, WINE MAKES MUMMY CLEVER, BEER MAKES DADDY STRONG and lots of other stuff. His scriptwriting work includes BLACK BOOKS, THE GREAT OUTDOORS, LITTLE BRITAIN, HYPERDRIVE, ARMSTRONG AND MILLER, SMACK THE PONY, GNOMEO AND JULIET, and THE ARMANDO IANNUCCI SHOWS.
