One of the most beguiling presences on the comics scene, Dame Darcy - musician, actress, cable TV star, fortune teller, dollmaker, and cartoonist to the core - has been bewitching readers for over ten years with her neo-Victorian horror/ humour/ romance comic Meatcake. Alternating between one-off often cruelly tragic fairy tales and ongoing romps starring her eclectic cast of characters, including Effluvia the Mermaid, the roguish roue Wax Wolf, Igpay the Pig-Latin pig, Stregapez (a women who speaks by dispensing Pez-like tablets through a bloody hole in her throat), the mischievous Siamese twins, Scampi the Selfish Shellfish, the stalwart Friend the Girl, and the blonde bombshell Richard Dirt, Meatcake is like a peek into the most creative, deranged dollhouse you ever saw. The Meatcake Compilation assembles in clothbound luxury the very best from the first decade of Meatcake (including "Hungry is the Heart," the legendary collaboration with Watchmen's Alan Moore, a big Darcy fan who has worked with her on his ABC Comics) - almost 200 pages of wild and woolly comics.
