PETER BLEGVAD's cult comic strip LEVIATHAN ran for seven years in The Independent on Sunday review. It was memorably described by Simpsons creator Matt Groening as "one of the greatest, weirdest things I've ever stared at". Quirky and referential, dark and droll, by turn, Blegvad's cartoons are indeed unlike anything else in print. THE BOOK OF LEVIATHAN assembles the cream of Levi and Cat's adventures in a 160pp hardback - startlingly produced, with flat-bound, mirrored cover boards and full colour printing throughout. It is an object to treasure, and a snip at GBP12.99

MEDIA REVIEWS
Peter Blegvad's comic strip is one of the greatest, weirdest things I've ever stared at. Give me Leviathan or give me death! -- Matt Groening
Whenever I'm asked for proof that literature, art and poetry can exist in comic form, I point to Peter Blegvad. -- Ben Katchor, author The Jew of New York.
The greatest, weirdest thing. -- Times Literary Supplement
Blegvad has opened up the crib-fenced world that precedes words and filled it to the brim with deadpan poetry and gnomic chatter * San Francisco Chronicle *
Funny, enigmatic and beautifully limned- what more could one ask? -- Glen Baxter * The Observer, Book of the Year *
Combines surreal imagination and existential musings with superb draughtsmanship. * The List, Glasgow & Edinburgh *
Deeply weird, unique and disturbingly wonderful. * Independent on Sunday *
