"Of Barnaby and Loaker"
Issue#13: "Of Barnaby and Loaker" Barnaby draws parallels between the 'Of Mice and Men' characters George and Lennie and Loaker and himself...
Notes and References: The title is reference to "Of Mice and Men" written by John Steinbeck in 1937. The book tells the tragic tale of George and Lennie, Two ranch workers struggling to achieve their dreams during The Great Depression. The characters are the original influences for Barnaby and Loaker. It also happens to be one of my all time favourite books.
The Banner/Cover is a reference to The 1993 Penguin published cover of "Of Mice and Men"- http://realm-of-reviews.blogspot.co.uk/2012/01/of-mice-and-men-by-john-steinbeck.html
This issue marks the second appearance of Barnaby's bald friend Bancroft who last appeared in issue#7: "Hide, Seek and Barnaby!"
