La Squab

Squab stuffThe latest addition to the Savoy comic canon, malevolent moppet La Squab first came to plague the earth in Meng & Ecker #9 when she appeared at Porchfield Square demanding to see her 'mummy'. It soon transpired that an unwholesome liaison between The Meng and Vince Taylor-impersonater (and self-styled 'singer') Morrissey had unleased this bundle of viciousness on the world.

Her exploits, in classic three-panel newspaper strip format, continue the Meng & Ecker tradition of righteous misanthropy with special attention paid to hacking withered limbs from the ailing body of English Letters. No quarter asked—none fucking given!

Currently running in The Edge, 'The sharpest magazine in the world.'

Reviews

"As usual, The Edge's central strength lies with its non-fiction, in particular stunning in-depth interviews with Jonathan Carroll, Iain Banks, Ken McLeod and Graham Joyce. Fine fiction comes courtesy of Michael Moorcock, Chris Petit and Graham Joyce. The highlight of the issue for me is, as ever, David Britton's 'Punk Noir', the increasingly brilliant La Squab. I was particularly relieved to see this cartoon as I had feared the editor's new-style publication wouldn't have room for it."
