9780007207381: Hackman: Love in Buckets

Featuring the further adventures of the canine cartoon sensation, this second volume of hilarious strips and cartoons will confirm Hackman as the world's most adorable Dog in a Bucket. Hackman, the spaniel, is paranoid, mixed-up and stressed. Constant scratching at his ears has left him condemned to live with a bucket on his head. He lives in a world where stuff happens at every lamppost in fact, it's amazing he hasn't ended up at the dog pound. The frolics and adventures of 'Hack' continue, with a whole kennel-full of new characters, including Colin the bored goldfish, Trubshaw, Hackman's favourite toy whose head was chewed off (much to his irritation), Lenny and Mikey, a pair of crocodiles who live in the zoo, and the Angle Poisers, a sect of lights in a local shop who, after seeing Hackman pass their store, believe him to be an all-powerful being, "The Great Black Bulb"! Fortunately for Hackman, he has human friends, too, including the pet psychiatrist, Chuck Brandon, who helps sort out his problems. As Hackman discovers from regular sessions of regression therapy, life's been a bitch for bucket-wearing dogs for centuries. Although the therapy is meant to alleviate stress, it only enhances it for poor Hackman! Hackman's adventures continue with further bizarre night-time visits from Rex, the Sirius space alien, who also has a bucket on his head and thinks Hackman must therefore be a world leader. These secret Rex Files are included in this second volume of strips and cartoons.

About the Author:

Bill Houston has worked as a commercial artist and designer for many years and has a finely-tuned gift for character creation with humorous annotations. He was inspired to create Hackman when he saw a cute-looking dog wearing a bucket collar from a vet's in Wakefield. That one doodle sat in his notebook for years until he recently came across it again and the idea for Hackman was born.
