Introducing Crumb...

ROK Comics is delighted to announce its latest addition: a great new humour strip from New Zealand-based creator David Fletcher.

Crumb is the tale of the eternal struggle for survival right under our noses - at the bird table - featuring a cast that includes a very fat bird whose motto is survival of the fattest, a rat and a hungry cat.

David Fletcher tells us he was bom in England in 1952 and excelled at drawing cartoons in the margins of his maths book at school (and falling asleep).

On leaving school he studied production engineering for five years then jumped on a aircraft bound for New Zealand, where he's lived ever since.

He was employed as an illustrator and cartoonist by New Zealand's largest daily newspaper the New Zealand Herald for three years. But for the last twenty years he's been pretending to work from home as a comic strip artist. He draws a daily strip called The Politician and several weekly strips including The TV Kids which appears in the TV Guide there. His cartoons are syndicated to Europe, Britain, Africa, Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand (you can see more of them on

David lives in Auckland with his wife and two children. "People still keep asking me when I'm going to get a proper job," he says.

A big warm welcome to David and enjoy Crumb - we think it's great!
