Hugo Tate ran in Deadline magazine from 1988 to 1994. Part of it was collected as Hugo Tate: O, America in 1993 and in 1994 this collection won a UK Comic Art Award for best graphic novel. Hopefully, there'll be a complete collection of all the Hugo Tate strips sometime soon - keep checking the news section for information on this.

It's hard to explain in a couple of sentences what Hugo Tate is about exactly, but he was a stick-man who, as he acquired experiences during the run of the strip, slowly evolved into a more figurative character. It's the sort of visual metaphor that could only work in comics.

Here are some of my favourite pages from Hugo Tate. Click the thumbnails below, or just click here to browse them all.
