Lesson Master

  This review is well overdue, since I got this wonderful comic at the Newcastle Zine Fair back in October, and among the booty I brought back, this was the best score.

Ben Hutchings's 'Lesson Master' is a creepy little fellow who exists purely to teach people lessons, while taking pedantry to hilarious extremes. For example, in one strip a pedestrian steps one centimetre off a zebra crossing, which brings the Lesson Master zooming up on a motor scooter, running over the offender's foot, breaking his ankle. In another, a detective inspector, having announced the team's triumphant capture of a serial killer, leans back in his chair, puffs on a cigar and puts his feet up on the desk. Lesson Master pops out of the detective's coffee mug, points out the correct use of a desk, then underlines the lesson by slamming a bar fridge down onto the detective's legs.

'Offenders' are rewarded with a 'Lesson Learned' ribbon plastered over their face or head.

There are 21 one- or two-page strips in this volume, including The Lesson of Pronunciation, The Lesson of Marriage, The Lesson of Pencils, The Lesson of Pop Stars, and many more funny and edifying comic strips. You will become a big fan of the Lesson Master by the end, guaranteed and for sure.

This comes very highly recommended by me, so email Mr Hutchings at drphwoar [at] yahoo [dot] com or visit his website and secure your copy as soon as possible. Why not make it a Christmas present to yourself?
