An early book by Ben Newman and Nobrow Press. In the 17x23 series. Great amusing graphics by this British illustrator.

About the book:

Inspired by the mythical serpent Ouroboros, Ben Newman takes the reader on a wordless tale of action and adventure that juxtaposes brutal violence with ecstatic comic exuberance, where our protagonist fights a band of rogue, thuggish, drug peddling perverts after they murder his newly beloved mermaid.

Brought to life in a world of Newman's trademark bold style and visually arresting use of colour and timing; Newman plays with the theme of life and rebirth until the story's final punch line, seeing life not as a one-way path but as something that goes back on itself and is forever looping. As described in the book ‘(life) is that which is forever done, but which may not be undone, it is life and death intertwined. Both chicken and the egg… but also Sunday dinner.
