I have been looking forward to the release of Freaks for some time, and now the day is finally here.
A collection of short fiction by the lovely Nik Perring and Caroline Smailes with illustrations by Darren Craske it looks to be a treat to my story and comic loving self.
So I’m super happy to have this little sneak peak of some of the wonders inside…….
[Super Power: The ability to make oneself unseen to the naked eye]
If I stay totally still,
if I stand right tall,
with me back against the school wall,
close to the science room’s window,
with me feet together,
if I make me hands into tight fists,
make me arms dead straight,
if I push me arms into me sides,
if I squeeze me thighs,
stop me wee,
if me belly doesn’t shake,
if me boobs don’t wobble,
if I close me eyes tight,
so tight that it makes me whole face scrunch,
if I push me lips into me mouth,
if I make me teeth bite me lips together,
if I hardly breathe,
if I don’t say a word.
I’ll magic meself invisible,
and them lasses will leave me alone.
