Sid's Snake Returns!

Well, that's partly true. Indeed, Slippy does make a triumphant return, but not in comic strip form, and only as a one off. None-the-less he is back, on the cover of Dave Gorman's latest book - Dave Gorman vs The Rest of the World. It's all about Dave challenging thousands of people to a game of some sort!

It makes you wonder though, did Dave get permission from Egmont to use images of Slippy (who, if you are not familiar with the character, appeared in Sid's Snake in Whizzer and Chips from 1969 to 1990, and in Buster for a few years after that, when the two comics merged), or is he just hoping they won't notice?

It sounds intresting, and I've ordered it, even if it was just to see Slippy back in print!

You can find the book here:

I'm a big Dave Gorman fan - saw him the other week in Belfast - so can highly recommend his writing. Think you'll enjoy the book!

I haven't read any of his books yet - I hope they're as good as they sound!
