Cover of Chicken is Champ #3 Creator(s): Toby Morris
Publishers: S Press (Self Published)
From: New Zealand

The cover on this is a great bit of graphic design. Inspired but the look of those old blue note album covers from the 50s & 60s Toby gives us a bold image taking up most of the front with some nice graphic design work on the text and a lovely drawing of some typical Wellington flats.

Inside we find Toby in experimental mode, trying out lots of layout tricks, doing a flyer for a local band and presenting a few episodes of his cartoon strip Can't Find Jacob. It's all drawn in Toby's usual energetic style, with bold and uncluttered artwork.

In a Word: Groovy.
