True Brit

No, not me.

T told me about this comic/graphic novel a while ago, and I got it from the library yesterday.

True Brit is a spoof on Superman; In this hilarious twist on a familiar tale, the infant Superman's rocket ship crash lands in an English town even smaller than Smallville. Adopted by the kindly Clarks, young Colin is taught to hide his powers, as nobody likes to stand out in a crowd. But when a grown-up Colin - now a mild-mannered reporter for The Daily Smeor - uses his powers publicly, the question on everyone's lips is: what will the neighbours think?

And I thought it sounded interesting and I was especially intrigued by the fact that John Cleese had something to with it.

Well. It's not particularly funny, apart from a few giggles. So I can't recommend it. Not even for its taking the piss out of all things Englishness.

Atleast it was a quick read. That's about the best I can say about it...
