“Potts is a cartoonist with an expressive and impressive emotional range.” – Andy Oliver, Broken Frontier

Philip was getting old. His face was getting wrinkled, his hairline was moving backwards and he was on the waiting list for a knee operation. It was his day off and he didn’t have any plans, so he ate his breakfast in front of the computer screen and asked himself “What do I want to do?”

A grand existential crisis, a surreal Bulgakovian satire, or simply A Quiet Disaster? We follow Philip on his day off work as he struggles to find meaning and happiness through the everyday decisions that make up a day. Why did he cross that street? Does he keep walking, or shelter from the rain? What will make him happy? And just why is that dog wearing glasses?

“Avery Hill Publishing out of mighty South London are turning into one of the most interesting voices in British comics. It seems that everything they put out is intelligent, beautiful and of the moment.” – John Freeman

•Comics retailer

“It’s somewhat absurdist, existentialist even, Potts taking a step back from reality to dissect a day in the life and observe so well just how we can find the smallest, most insignificant things absolutely disastrous. The biggest thing Potts has done so far and by far the best.” – Richard Bruton

“It confounded my expectations, whilst simultaneously delivering a gripping, if paradoxically gentle, read.”
