Faceless is an irreverent, controversial and hilarious cartoon strip that started as a Web-based comic and quickly acquired a huge following. Although the ‘faceless’ characters are amusing and entertaining, the content is not for the faint-hearted! Faceless never pulls any punches, expressing those sentiments readers feel but never dare verbalize for fear of being judged ‘politically incorrect’. Although the primary function of Faceless is to amuse and entertain, it always evokes a response of some sort, often shocking readers out of their apathy. As the author says, ‘The only thing worse than people talking about you is people NOT talking about you.’ In this comic strip there are no holy cows – the comments and observations, and generally taking the Mickey out of people, are aimed at everyone. A true original! Appeals to readers across the race and political spectrums, particularly those who are sick and tired of living in an obsessively PC world.

About the Author
In 2008, as a victim of restructuring, he found himself with a lot of time on his hands and finally knuckled down to something he’d contemplated doing for a long time: supplementing his joke site. And so Faceless was born in 2009, after many different characters, figures and styles were tried and discarded. As it gained a following, strips were spotted in the wild (behind toilet doors, on other websites, in emails sent on by friends and, more recently, in Playboy South Africa), and there was an increasing demand for a book. He self-published the first Faceless book in 2010.
