Book of the week: Modern Toss – a Decade in the Shithouse

8 Nov|Julian Mash

From the Modern Toss collection, Ten Years in the Shithouse by Jon Link and Mick Bunnage

Surely the ultimate Christmas present for 2014. A finely produced hardback tome that will have you laughing out loud as you flick through the brilliantly conceived cartoons from Brighton’s premier ‘shit scribblers’ (their own description.) It features all the Modern Toss favourites like Mr Tourette and Drive by Abuser alongside the always funny Work Series. Jon Link and Mick Bunnage, the pair responsible for these wonderful cartoons, explain in the introduction that the title “… was inspired by Toss enthusiasts, who told us this is where most of our comics and prints end up.” Wherever you choose to read this book one thing is guaranteed: you will shit yourself laughing. Here’s to the next ten years of Toss. JM
