    “Seriously playful…it is a smile-shaped rip in the Turin Shroud of neo-absurdism.” blurb for SOUTHAMPTON DADA by Nick Rogers (CANT BOOKS published July 6th 2009) http://www.cantbooks.co.uk/

    The Borchester Echo meets Marxism Today, Southampton Dada is a comic gem. Get it online from Cant Books before it sells out!
