Warren "Wee" Elliott has written on Wow! Retracted over at Almost Normal Comics.

Have a look here.

"Wow! Retracted is a 110-page, B&W / color, anthology created, written and drawn by David Robertson with guest artwork by Eileen Budd, Marc Casilli, Zu Dominiak, Damon Herd, Olivia Hicks, Rebecca Horner, Paddy Johnston, Tim Kelly, Neil Paterson, Ludi Price, and Pam Wye. Published by Fred Egg Comics.

In this large, perfect bound collection of comic stories David and friends deliver an assortment of stories that really cover a range of subjects. The collection starts off with a tale about survival that involves cannibalism and ends with a tale about an out of this world pesky insect! In between those two are all sorts of fun and interesting short stories that take the reader to alien planets, battles between giant monsters and robots, peeks into lives of cat owners, slice-of-life vignettes, and much more! There are just so many different types of stories gathered together here it’s almost impossible to mention them all! In addition to the variety of topics covered, the art styles also cover a tremendous breadth! Everything from cartoony to realism can be found in these pages. There’s even a page where photos are incorporated into the story! Color is also injected in various spots throughout the anthology giving it an even more dynamic look!

"The latest release from David Robertson’s Fred Egg Comics sees him continue his art/writing duties although with help from some other artists this time too.

Wow! Retracted is an eclectic mix of stories as we’ve come to expect from David with an equal mix of funny, sombre & thought-provoking all rolled into a series of largely one-page stories.  There are a few longer stories in there too but the whole series has the definite Fred Egg feel to them.

David is joined on art duties for eleven of the stories by Eileen Budd, Marc Cassilli, Zu Dominiak, Damon Herd, Olivia Hicks, Rebecca Horner, Paddy Johnston, Tim Kelly, Neil Paterson, Ludi Price, and Pam Wye.  They all add their own flair to the story they are on and the while the art is simplistic in places it doesn’t detract from the powerful message that’s at the heart of the stories he has created.  In fact, the change of style actually helps bolster the collection as one of David’s best.

There is something for everybody in this but for me every story has it’s own worth – the laugh out loud moments and the reality check moments is a really smart blend of themes to pull off and I can see me re-reading this again soon.  Another Fred Egg success and I look forward to the next book too.

You can get hold of this latest book over on the Fred Egg Comics online store.  You can keep updated with what else David is working on over on his website and Blog as well as his Facebook, Twitter & Tumblr pages.

John Freeman has written on Wow! Retracted over at Down the Tubes.

"Wow! Retracted is the latest title from Dundee-based Fred Egg Comics – and if you’ve previously bought any of this quirky indie publisher’s books… then be prepared for even more quirkiness!

LeadIng with plenty of head-scratching, brain-teasing strips from writer-artist David Robertson, Wow! Redacted also features eleven short stories of his strips drawn respectively by Eileen Budd, Marc Cassilli, Zu Dominiak, Damon Herd, Olivia Hicks, Rebecca Horner, Paddy Johnston, Tim Kelly, Neil Paterson, Ludi Price, and Pam Wye.

Wow! Retracted is a one man anthology – at least as far as the writing goes.

“Nando” sees one man face mortality after crashing in the Andes. “Ink Drive” features an interdimensional trip. Walter Scott explains “Patriotism”. A worker gets even in “Revenge on the Orbiting Space Pod”. Romance is not dead in “Endless Love”.

The subtitles don’t quite match in “News for the Deaf”. A prankster runs amok in a virtual reality environment.

Two literary giants do battle in “George vs Herbert”. Romance is not dead in “Robot//Monster”. A talking bug causes havoc in “Intersectionality” And there’s more!

Wow! Retracted - Sample ArtWow! Retracted - Rvenge on an Orbiting Space Pod
“I have eleven different short stories written by me, with art by eleven others” David tells us, “on topics such as aliens, assumptions, the future, graffiti, horrible kids, ice poles, metafiction, synesthesia, rotted furniture, spray deodorants, and tarantulas.

“It’s a Fred Egg Comics bumper edition!”

A mix of genres – mostly black and white strips, but some in colour, this latest chunky, 110-page book from Fred Egg Comics costs just £10.

Kevin Bramer has written on Wow! Retracted over at Optical Sloth.

"To every comics artist out there who worries endlessly about putting out comics on a regular basis, you could do a lot more than emulating David. The bulk of his stories are short, usually only a few pages long. This lets him submit comics for all kinds of anthologies, and every year or so he has more than enough material to put out a book of his own. See how easy it is? Granted, lots of artists only deal with larger stories, but at least having the ability to work on shorter stories would be a nice change of pace for whenever you get stuck on whatever epic you’re working on. So hey, enough of the life advice, how about this comic? The bulk of these 40 (!) stories are written and drawn by David, with about a dozen of them coming from other artists. There’s no central underlying theme, just a big old pile of stories about all sorts of things. OK fine, his “I Live With a Killer” stories (about how his cat brings him pieces of various animals it’s killed) have a connecting theme, but they’re the exception here. Other highlights include the final thoughts of thelast two survivors from a plane crash, our first encounter with aliens, petty space station revenge, the man who’s always falling in love, the story and fate of Dolly the cloned sheep, a story of a missile attack (written by his son I think?), the concept of putting people in concerts who just want to talk for the whole show in their own section, exactly how much of your life you waste on vacuuming, skipping an internet video only to see it on the actual news later, a comic about making a comic that sort of eats itself (drawn by Zu Dominiak), the story a mouse brings back home after nearly being eaten, the robot and the monster, and the inner lives of a couple of flies. That’s what, not even half of the stories here? It’s another pretty fantastic bunch of stories from David, and if you’ve somehow gotten this far in life without seeing his work this is a solid chunk of comics to start with. No price listed, so I’m going to guess the arbitrary number of $10. Contact David and I’m sure he can set you straight…"
