Strawberry Ale

God and the devil walk into a bar… It sounds like the opening line of a joke, but it’s actually the premise of Strawberry Ale, the latest offering from British indie-comic press Unico. Disguised as a pair of country gentlemen, God and Satan sit down for a pint or two (or three) of strawberry ale as they discuss the future of humanity. We humans, it turns out, have been mucking things up on God’s Green Earth, and he’s none too happy about it. And, ironically, it’s Satan who flies to our defense. With flourishes of Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, and Douglas Adams, Strawberry Ale offers a dry comic twist on apocalyptic anxiety.
