Preview – ‘Birdman And Chicken: The Krazy Crusaders’ – More Classic Brit Humour Brought Back By The Treasury Of British Comics

by Richard Bruton

Cowled and caped, it’s the crime-bustin’ duo that went Krazy in the ’70s – Trevor Metcalf’s  Birdman and Chicken, the latest classic reprint from The Treasury of British Comics

Cover by Trevor Metcalf

To the outside world, Dick Lane and Mick Mason look like two average, law-abiding citizens – however, they lead an amazing double life!

For when fiendish finks and vile villains step over the line, Dick and Mick strike back as the crime-fighting duo, Birdman and Chicken!

Oh yes, it’s time to revisit the wacky and Krazy world of Birdman and Chicken, Trevor Metcalf’s funny, funny, funny parody of the ’60s Batman & Robin series.

Cowled, caped and equipped with a vast array of crime-busting gadgets, Birdman and his not-so-bright sidekick Chicken – nicknamed ‘The Boy Blunder’ – fight back against the likes of The Giggler, Sourpuss, The Puzzler and Father Time – and sometimes they even win!

Collected for the very first time, this is the classic superhero parody from the ’70s, originally serialised in Krazy comic from 1976-1978 and much loved and so well remembered by a legion of fans.
