2000 AD is pleased to announce the publication, in a European-format hardback edition, of surreal classic 2000 AD strip Hewligan's Haircut, by Peter Milligan and Jamie Hewlett.
Originally published in 1990, Hewligan's Haircut follows the titular character (an amalgam of the name Hewlett and Milligan, fact fans), as he crafts himself the world's most improbable haircut with nothing more than a pair of NHS issue safety scissors, and finds himself on a bizarre quest to save reality in a world gone distinctly dayglo. Along the way, he meets and falls in love with dimension-warping traveller Scarlet O'Gasmeter (imagine a cuter Doctor Who riding the fastest hobby horse in the West), and fights his way through more weirdness than even Dali and Bosch could come up with after an all-nighter at William Burroughs' place.
Hewligan's Haircut was written by Peter Milligan, the prolific 2000 AD scribe who created the legendary Bad Company among many other classic series, and whose recent work outside 2000 AD includes acclaimed strips such as X-Statix and Vertigo Pop! London. The series was drawn by Jamie Hewlett, well-known for the anarchic Tank Girl and a number of record covers for bands including the Senseless Things. More recently, Hewlett has played a major role in the band Gorillaz, where his distinctive art can be seen in the band's animated videos.
Hewligan's Haircut is one of the most colourful, strange and funny stories to ever appear in the Galaxy's Greatest Comic, and should appeal to all fans of the creators' other work, and anyone who can appreciate a truly mind-bending haircut.
