Comic description

The Teatime Club: A heartbreaking work of staggering incompetence. In 1994 John Jaques graduated from University. Young, free and educated, the world was his oyster... Several years later he is still living at home with his parents,working in a call centre with no love life, no prospects and unmanageable hair.

Most of his contemporaries are in London, working in Graduate jobs and living the dream. Meanwhile John Jaques spends his time drinking with his younger brother and old school friends in their run down, Northern, provincial home town. He fails to understand why his life is not panning out how he imagines it would... He sees the world through film and wants life to mirror the plot of a John Hughes movie.

Frustrated and feeling trapped he plots to leave and see the world but first there is one last weekend expedition to arrange.

If you've been looking for a nostalgic story about a post-college drop-out's drinking adventures and his struggles with the meaning of life and crazy frizzy hair then this is the comic for you.

I had On Wenlock Edge in mind and a John Hegley poem which is probably a knock off of Houseman and Auden. Just looked up the Auden one and it is easily the best of the three. I may have come across it before but totally forgot about it.

I think Frank L Baum had some pretty questionable ideas about native Americans too. I still think it may be my favourite film from my childhood...even better than "Digby the biggest dog in the World"

Ah, the wonderful, cute "Wizard Of Oz", where the original Tin Man ended up on a respirator for the rest of his life, due to ingested silver paint...and they used asbestos for the snow.
