the line

There's a great column in today's paper by
Charlie Brooker on comics.

I too taught myself to draw by copying the characters, and became a skilled draftsman. The artist I liked best was Tom Paterson, who used to have lots of self-referential gags in his strips; "talented duck brought in to add interest to an extremely dull picture", that kind of thing. In fact he probably just lives round the corner, this being Dundee and all.

Today will be my last day off before an epic six day ordeal of call-centre overtime. Why not join me for a week of posts delivered straight from the front line of 21st century service
hell? I can guarantee a feast of anguish, self-loathing and self-pity. Not to be missed!
