Review by kirsty mcGrory
(Extract) 'The impulse to retain a sense of levity and irreverence feels very pertinent for an artist who, having garnered widespread acclaim for Peter Pan, and after sixteen years of working at Establishment institution DC Thomson, decided to move to maverick rival publication Viz. Stref now spends much of his working day drawing mischievous parodies of the characters he used to illustrate in new strips such as Oor Prince Wullie and The Broon Windsors.'
