Preview: Leo Baxendale’s Sweeny Toddler

New out this week – the classic Sweeny Toddler by Leo Baxendale

There are few more influential creators in British comics than Leo Baxendale, and few more memorable characters than Sweeny Toddler, the demon baby! We’re delighted to be publishing the first complete collection of Baxendale’s baby-faced terror this June – the absolute must have all-ages book for the summer. It’s no exaggeration to call Baxendale a genius and this collection proves why: from the anarchic chaos of his plots to the razor-sharp wit and gruesome grotesques, his work remains groundbreaking and hugely influential.
