Indeed, Omnibus Press have a long history of publishing Smiths/Moz-related books, like The Smiths (back in 1985 - possibly the first publication dedicated to the band), The Smiths - The complete story (1988), Morrissey - In his own words and, of course, Johnny Rogan's Morrissey & Marr: The Severed Alliance (1992)!

Accountant, rampant.
I wasn't really too jazzed about this until I watched this interview... now I can't wait to pick it up. If this collection manages to convey even half of the thoughtfulness that Con expresses in this interview it's going to be great. I haven't followed the strips as they came out so this will all be new to me.

It's always been one of my favorites, too; it's one of those classic examples of how Morrissey can take such a simple moment in time and reveal the more complex emotions connected to it.
