Human Garbage collects eight of Josh Hicks’ stories, covering work previously self-published and strips penned for Off Life and Dirty Rotten Comics, with many strips re-coloured and re-packaged exclusively for the collection along with brand new strips.


Along with painfully honest observations in the stories Body Conscious and Club, there are also satirical, witty magical realist strips Waste and Wake Up, and a pulpy detective throwback story, The Case of the Black Cat. This collection is a landmark work from a major new voice in British comics and a Broken Frontier Six to Watch artist.


‘An accessible and expressive cartooning style and a richly fertile comedic imagination marked Hicks out to me as someone to keep a watchful eye on’ – Andy Oliver, Broken Frontier
