causticlad: Matter-Eater Lad doing his cracky thing (Default)

Alan Moore's and Steve Parkhouse's The Bojeffries Saga was sporadically published during the 80s and early 90s. It was more or less The Addams Family meets Coronation Street. Set in Northampton, England, Grandpa was a Cthulhoovian horror, the baby was a lethally radioactive metahuman in the basement, and Uncle Raoul was a werewolf. As for Uncle Festus?



(Two pages from an ten-page story)





This, and other Bojeffries Clan stories, was published in 1992's The Complete Bojeffries Saga #1, from Tundra Press UK. It's long out of print, but to my surprise I see that individual comics issues for some of the strips are available on eBay.

Hah, yes, I *totally* guessed that Uncle Festus would vomit a lot and spout Cyrillic characters when confronted by carol singers.

...Wait, what?

I understand Top Shelf is going to reprint the series next year.
