(Don't) Join the Army - Darren Cullen (2013)
An absurd and potentially offensive satire on military recruitment and the false promises that come with life (and death) in the army. This is my first self-published comic, a 20 page diatribe against war and the organisations we created to fight it. It is printed on a single sheet of paper, folded like a concertina leaflet, the outside featuring a 1.48 metre Bayeux tapestry style recreation of the Iraq war. Inside contains various diagrams, short comic strips and illustrations, all of it entirely hilarious obviously.
I'm also offering a 'deluxe edition' which contains several additional pull out pieces of work, including a 16-page mini-comic, army related adverts, A3 "Battlefield Casualties Action Man" poster, Wheel of Misfortune, postcards and stickers.
