I find the Drunken Bakers the bleakest of all the strips. Pretty depressing stuff.Going to see Barney Farmer do a reading from his new book, a drunken bakers novel tomorrow. I'm slightly dubious how good a drunken bakers novel could be, but it's got some solid reviews and sounds like it could be good. A noble effort if nothing else.
He's interviewed about it here: Inside the head of the creator of Viz's Drunken Bakers
His Male Online strip is a work of genius:I find the Drunken Bakers the bleakest of all the strips. Pretty depressing stuff.
I've not been an alcoholic, or a baker, but i think it probably gets that feeling of your life spiralling out of control, whilst you are observing it in a drunken haze quite well.
