Marvo, in Mistification, has a lot of jobs. He learns all he knows from the stories people tell, so he moves around a lot, speaking to people in odd and ordinary places.
His work as a dishwasher reminds me of one of my favourite comic stories, written and drawn by the brilliant Anna Brown. She also did Ben Peek’s Nowhere Near Savannah.
Dishpig is hilarious and brilliant. I’ve read it dozens of times since it first appeared in Northbourne and Glory Bound and it still makes me laugh. Anna has given me permission to reprint it here.
