Belly Up! is a mad, butcherous, sweet, caustic carnival of surreal beauty and salt-in-the-eye satire. Darren Allen and William Barker’s joyfully nuts comic blends ludicrous comic strips with outrageous ubernews. Stuffed full of brakes-off Jupitermoon sex guides, bellymind-penetrating death games, cute woodcuts of desperate truths, frolicking-through-the-apocalypse stories, elegant and hairy subvertisements, exquisite cartoon masterpieces (illustrated by Ai, Robert Crumb, John O’Brien, Otto von Beach and Danny Morison) and the strange and truthful language of bees.

One reader said:
Belly Up! opened a vortex in my innermost. I was on the bus looking at the hideous grey lumps in the dark caverns of my soul when I picked up Belly Up! and immediately wet myself with achingly sweet laughter… and then I wet the person next to me and next to them. Soon the whole bus was drowning in the river of my euphoric urine. Worth every penny!
