The Adventures of Simon Pegg
Comic spoof from the guy who brought us Shaun of the Dead.
The Adventures of Simon Pegg Review
by on June 10, 2011
Simon Pegg, the man behind seminal UK TV show Spaced, zomromcom Shaun of the Dead and the forthcoming Paul, is a confirmed geek, so it can be of little surprise that he has turned his astute hand to a digital comic.
Funny, nerdy and clever in equal measure, The Adventures of Simon Pegg deal with the eponymous hero and his robotic manservant Canterbury – fuelled by a huge supply of fizzy drink and (occasionally wince-worthy) jokes.
Like most of Pegg’s stuff, some of the more puerile humour is wide of the mark, but for British comic fans in particular there is great pleasure to be had in his assured grasp of the pop-culture zeitgeist and his love of everything from Star Wars to Superman.
There are times when the jokes appear to have been liberated straight out of Austin Powers, and this is an adult offering so there’s plenty of swearing and the odd bit of PG sex.
Price wise, this ducks in at a very reasonable £1.79, and the digital extras alone make this an essential purchase for the comic fan – with some nice animations keeping things feeling dynamic.
