Grave Horticulture 1 & 2
Midden Brawny is a town riddled with creepy secrets, and they all seem to centre around the Gravelly Graves allotment. But why is the owner known as ‘The Blood Vegan’, and who lives in the Erratic Caravan? Why is faded pop hunk Daniel Furnace being hassled by ghouls? What’s inside the Awful Hothouse? What’ll happen when the local coppers get wind of it? And just HOW is local naff dad Gary Flash involved with all this?!?

“There’s something uniquely hot daddy to the fetish bar lurking in the power of these drawings that when combined with the Scottish phraseology witch their way into a mesmerizing vision of punk agrarianism” – The Comics Journal.
