I can't remember how I first came to hear about Wild 7 but I'm glad I did. It's absolutely nuts in a good way - it reads like a violent, cynical exploitation movie for ten year olds ODing on one too many bowls of sugary breakfast cereal - and I love the frenetic, expressive, overblown artwork.

It's great stuff and seriously neglected.

Better yet, it's dirt cheap for a decade old release from a dead publisher - I think I managed to pick up all six volumes for less than £10 a year or two back.

You managed to find the original print volumes? That's awesome. I have two of the volumes dating back to my Viz days, but the rest I could only find in ebook. Ebooks are eternal! Wink

Yep - I just took a look on amazon.co.uk and it looks like it's getting scarcer but the first two volumes can still be had for as little as £0.01!
Ebooks I can live without...
