It’s no secret that I’ve been a fan of Brian Roberts’ Jack’s Pike cartoons for a while but until now they were only available on his excellent web site. With Christmas looming there’s no better time to release them in book format and what a great stocking filler this will make. I can see plenty of smiling anglers curling up on Christmas morning with a mince pie and something to warm the cockles while leafing through it.
Who Is Jack?
Jack loves a spot of pike fishing and spends an extraordinary amount of time on the river bank. You can follow his adventures in a one-to-four panel comic strip, meet his fishing partner Bob and long suffering wife Tracy while along the way you’ll bump into some some smart-arse bleak and find out what the pike think of his efforts…
The inspiration for Jack’s Pike comes from the author’s own fishing experience, particularly on slow days, waiting for a run, not to mention the increasingly dumb conversations between his friends while trying to picture what the fish are doing below the surface.
