ABOUT BEAST WAGON
During the course of the hottest day of the year, the delivery of a male Asiatic lion believed to be the ‘golden messiah’ – who prophecy foretells will permanently upset the established order – sparks a chain reaction of events in which the animals of Whipsnarl Zoo plot a revolution against their keepers.
As the heat wave and tensions rise, the boundary between animal and human begins to blur into a fever dream of madness and violence.
Created by Illustrator John Pearson and Writer Owen Michael Johnson – with letters by Colin Bell – Beast Wagon is a critically acclaimed and British Comic Award nominated fusion of drama, satire and dark comedy, blending contemporary themes of religious fanaticism, systems and consumerism, with inspiration from the long tradition of daring anthropomorphic comics from We3 and The Puma Blues to Pride Of Baghdad.
