Way back in 1983, I was reading a British comic called Warrior. I had been introduced to Warrior by Leigh, who had introduced me to many offbeat and unusual comics over the years. He introduced me to Cerebus the Aardvark and 2000 AD too. 17 years later, the only comics I read are Cerebus, one story from Warrior, and a few spin-offs from 2000 AD. Warrior was a strange magazine. In issue 12, there appeared the first part of a truly bizarre story The Rentman Cometh. This was the first ever story in The Bojeffries Saga. Next issue came the second part of that story One Of Our Rentman Is Missing. I was hooked.
The Bojeffries saga is written and drawn by Alan Moore and Steve Parkhouse. They are apparently famous now for many other fine comics, but I have only ever read The Bojeffries Saga.

The scans in the table show which issues I have. I plan on collecting the lot in the next few years. If you are interested in deep belly laughs, quirky humour, unforgettable lines (vas not dock, vas poodle) and story-lines at right-angles to most other stuff, then I can heartily recommendThe Bojeffries Saga. The easiest way to read the stories is to hunt down the Complete Bojeffries saga. It's out of print, but occasionally surfaces on eBay.
