I have talked about the comic book and its creator many a time. And tomorrow sees the US release of his latest collection of comics, Verity Fair: Custard Creams & Pink Elephants, by Terry Wiley.

Markosia To Publish My Favourite Comic

I’ve talked about this comic before. It’s been published intermittently over the last twenty years. Creative teams have split over it. Its narrative isn’t even in one continuity, spinning off along the way. It’s called Sleaze Castle.

My Favourite Ongoing Comic Gets Another Issue – Verity Fair #3
