Simon Pegg in comic book form


Deep breath... The Adventures Of Simon Pegg And Canterbury And The Mystery Of The Scarlet Panther And The Star Of Nefertiti And The Tablet Of Amonhotep IV is the talk of the town. What is it? A genuinely superb new iPhone app from the baffling brain of Simon Pegg.

Based on a running joke throughout 'Nerd Do Well', Pegg's autobiography, it follows a ripped version of The Peggler in comic book form with his faithful robotic servant Canterbury. Their mission? To stop the evil Lord Black from firing an Egyptian laser into the sun and destroying our fair planet.

What you see above are world exclusive images. To the left is the very first incarnation of Pegg's comic book appearance, and to the right the final version.

Far be it for you to take our word for it, but we thoroughly enjoyed the app. In fact at one stage we let out a guttural laugh-cum-snort on the bus that, we think, scared a woman to the point of her disembarking.

The app costs £1.79 and can be purchased right here.
