Set in the seedy underbelly of London in the swinging 60s, Nick Prolix’s webcomic The Sheep And The Wolves takes a unique look at the familiar subject of Cockney gangsters. But will his tale of Jimmy the debt collector be the leader of the pack, or just another wold in sheep’s clothing?

The Sheep and the Wolves is a black and white webcomic set in 1960’s London in the fictional borough of Three Kings. It’s drawn and written by self-taught cartoonist Nick Prolix. The stories Nick tells are typically British, at least for the period it is set in and they deal with issues like racial and sexual politics and of course crime. Our main character Jimmy is a debt collector for the mob and in his wideboy style, he takes us through the old school, newspaper style strips as he goes about his business of collecting money, intimidating almost everyone he meets and chatting up girls.
