What they’ve been saying about Fred Egg Comics:

 

…a pretty damned compelling comic. Read it and enjoy, as there’s plenty to like in here.

Kevin Bramer, Optical Sloth


The stories are dry, funny and, what makes it really compelling, is how recognisable the characters are, something that's often missing from comic books.  David's energy and world view shines through each story helping to make this a refreshing read.

Eileen Budd, Redbird Review


What's clear is that this is a long game for him, as he's interested in experimenting, getting better in public and simply getting work out there. ‘Dump’ is still his most promising work, as it matches that flatness of tone with strange goings-on to create a deadpan atmosphere.

Rob Clough, High-Low


The quality of printing is great and this was an enjoyable and fun read. If asked, yes, I'd recommend this. All together a great little book.

Terry Hooper-Scharf, Comic Bits Online


Robertson’s unique way of thinking makes each story interesting. There’s something of Harvey Pekar in the straightforward and commonplace nature of many of the events, and the art is simple yet effective which perfectly matches the tone.

Milo McLaughlin, Gaseous Brain


We get in these pages something that is simultaneously extravagantly ambitious and yet utterly down-to-earth. Jaunty and engaging in tone, it leaves the reader feeling fully invested in Robertson’s love of the form – an almost infectious enthusiasm.

Andy Oliver, Broken Frontier


It's 60 pages, with slick bright red covers, and it's pretty substantial. It's a collection of the different comics that the author's composed, plus some collaborations with different authors and a 24 hour comic as well. These comics are black and white and they're straightforward and clear in terms of both image and flow.

Anne Persand, Xerography Debt


The first story, Dump, nicely illustrates one of Robertson's key strengths: the juxtaposition between the often mundane nature of daily life and the absurdities that can be found within.

Robertson's art is not flashy but is simple and effective, a good fit for the everyday situations depicted in his work.

Gary Smith, The Big Glasgow Comic Page


If I saw this in a store or at a con I would not have any clear idea what the thing was by looking at the cover. Some people might think ‘what the heck is that?’ and pick it up out of curiosity. Others might think ‘what the heck is that?’ and pass it by. I hope they pick it up. It is an enjoyable read.

Shannon Smith, Poopsheet Foundation


I liked David Robertson's story about Crohn's Disease, with the ironic subtext that many Crohn's suffer no longer crap their pants because they must use a colostomy bag. 

Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter
