Ian Stacey's Wet Paint

Much-praised cartoonist Ian Stacey has been in touch to say he has collected over 100 of his fab "Wet Paint" cartoons into a book. Priced at just £2, all proceeds of the sales will go to the Big Issue Foundation.

Alan Grant, Bryan Talbot and Ian Gibson are amongt his many famous fans. "Ian Stacey is an exceptionally funny cartoonist," says Alan. "He aims at just about every target under the sun, from genetic modification to Batman, and hits the mark in every case. Many of his punchlines are so wickedly funny I laughed out loud."

Check out his web site -- -- for samples and buy the book -- it's in a really good cause!

• To order the Wet Paint collection, send a cheque payable to "Charity Cartoons" to 12 Trunette Road,Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, CO15-2BB adding £1 for postage. Please add £2 for posting overseas (non UK).
