Got a hankering to see schoolgirls and schoolboys solving mysteries that involve curses, football, supernatural creatures and mothballs?
If those things ring your bells, then you will love….
|Bad Machinery is a webcomic set in the fictional town of Tackleford, England, written and drawn by John Allison.
The story involves two groups of schoolchildren that attend fictional “Griswalds Grammar School” who spend their time solving mysteries.
The groups interact, but each is unaware of that the other group is out solving mysteries, just like they are.
Rest assured thouhg, the whole thing is far less “Fantastic Five” than it sounds.
This strip has humour, action and mystery all with a very British sensibility to it.
Visually, Allison’s artwork is a joy to look at. There is detail (such as in the background scenery) but the overall feeling is simplified and not too over-drawn.
(By the way, I have no idea why this comic is called Bad Machinery. If you do, please let me know in the comments below).
