David Leach Conquers the Universe... so you don't have to
Not content with being the creator of the Psycho Gran comic, winning TV's Come Dine With Me, and hosting the blog Going To The Cinema So You Don't Have To, David Leach has now conquered the universe in his new comic book David Leach Conquers the Universe.
The 24 page comic features one long complete story revolving around a monstrous danger that threatens the city (the clue is on the cover) and only David Leach can stop it! Or at least the cynical David Leach of this comic universe, who differs in a few ways from the teetotal family man of reality.
Is it egotistical for a comic creator to make himself the headline star of his own power fantasy comic? Probably, but it's entertaining fun and that's what comics need more of. It's all very tongue in cheek but played dead straight, and reminded me in parts of the tone of one of my favourite movies Airplane! with a dash of Looney Tunes cartoons.
I've known David for almost 30 years and I know that when he does a comic he puts his heart and soul into it. The pages of this issue have an incredible amount of work in them and you'll certainly feel you've gotten value for money.This is one of the most enjoyable comics I've read in a long time.
