Thomas Wogan is not really the sort of character you’d expect anything odd to happen to, but this strange waiting room proves to be like something out of The Twilight Zone, with the various talking creatures revealing their life stories before demanding to know Wogan’s, which isn’t exactly anything that exciting, even when he describes the best day of his life, when he skived off work and went to Morecambe. Wogan’s humdrum existence working at Perriman Plastics, cooking processed snacks, television and admiring Delia Smith with a near pathological, e-stalker intensity (he spends some of his spare time ‘updating’ her Wikipedia with all manner of strange additions, for example) hardly seems to be the stuff of legend.
This is where digital publishing can come into the front for the smaller publisher, wanting to get their name out there and not being drowned out by the larger publishers and bigger names in the local comic shops around the world. The start ups are minimal, with hardly any distribution costs.
