    The Perry Bible Fellowship: Mr. Rex (detail)

The Perry Bible Fellowship – exceptionally good comics from Nicolas Grunwich

Posted by Anna Trench,

Nicolas Gurewitch’s comic strip The Perry Bible Fellowship began in 2001 and, true to its name, rapidly inspired a devoted following. Then it stopped. But now, in trickles, it resurfaces and 2013 has brought some brilliant additions.

It’s not just the wit and pacing of The Perry Bible Fellowship that’s so excellent. Whether in greeting card pastels, emo pencil shading, child-friendly watercolours or crude web-comics lines, the variety of styles Nicolas nails never ceases to amaze. The stories, often involving anthropomorphic dinosaurs and/or apocalyptic blunders, push childhood fantasies to their illogical extreme and flirt beautifully off the edge of taste, with a sweet exterior belying the third or fourth panel’s surprise. Every clever little one will make you smile.
