Back in January we reviewed the brilliant Norwegian anthology Outre Press. The stand out title in their second instalment was Brett Uren’s Torso Bear which was a crime noir featuring teddy bears and kids toys in the lead roles. We described is as ‘Like Raymond Chandler meets Teddy Ruxpin with a generous dose of Robert Crumb” and that we’d love to see a full series of it. Well hopefully that is about to happen as Brett has started a Kickstarter for a full Torsobear anthology called ‘Yarns From Toyburg’ and we hope you can help support it and make it happen.
