Description

To the outside world, Dick Lane and Mick Mason look like two average, law-abiding citizens. However, they lead an amazing double life - for when fiendish finks and vile villains step over the line, Dick and Mick strike back as the crime-fighting duo, Birdman and Chicken!

Cowled, caped and equipped with a vast array of crime-busting gadgets, Birdman and Chicken fight back against the likes of The Giggler, Sourpuss, The Puzzler and Father Time - and sometimes they win!

A rib-tickling parody of the 1966 Batman television series, Trevor Metcalfe's super-series was a highlight of Krazy comic every week and is finally collected here for the first time.

About Trevor Metcalfe

Yorkshire born Trevor Metcalfe had an interest in cartooning from an early age, inspired by the work of sports cartoonist Tom Webster and comic arts such as Reg Parlett and Dudley D. Watkins. At art school he studied alongside fellow future comics artist, Robert Nixon. The two became friends and collaborated on several strips. After finishing his National Service, Metcalfe found work with DC Thomson on strips including The Smasher in The Dandy. After a brief period away from comics, he returned to work for Fleetway/IPC both drawing and writing several strips including, Jasper the Grasper (Buster), Sweet Tooth and Junior Rotter (Whizzer & Chips), Doughnut and Rusty (Monster Fun) and Birdman and Chicken and The Amazing Three (Krazy).

In the 1990s he returned to DC Thomson where he illustrated the adventures of Billy Whizz in The Beano. As a freelancer illustrator he has also produced strip work for a Thomas the Tank Engine comic, McDonalds and worked on a guide for African farmers that was commissioned by The World Health Organisation.
