Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This third, and perhaps the best, Ogri collection shows how well Paul Sample has matured in his skills and gained great depth of subtlety in his drawings, and yet retained the intense magic. The whole book is in sumptuous full colour. It covers strip numbers 286 (1999) through to 349 (2005).

There is so much detail in some of the pages that a magnifier could be of great benefit! There is an excellent `introduction' by Rodney Reason and Prof Glumduck-Kolbenshlag telling us how Paul Sample got into the business.

If you have read Bike magazine, then you will be familiar with Ogri and his friends and enemies, the side-splitting humour, and the politically incorrect revenge, all glossing over an eternally true message "You are a soft vehicle, drive safely!" If you are a biker and do not know Ogri then this is a treat awaiting you. It is a most unusual Haynes Manual...

The scary part about these three collections is that I used to know people like the characters Paul Sample captures so well. From put-upon Malcolm, to ultra-normal Rodney Reason and his Volvo, to our cool and laid-back heroes Ogri and Kickstart, and the true star of the series, glamorous, independent Mitzi; I've met them all in their real-life guises. Or at least when looking at the living beings I could not but help thinking about Sample's larger than life characters and muttering, 'Ah-ha, this was the inspiration for ****'.

The detail in every page of drawings is wonderful; there is something new every time I look at them. If it were not impossible I'd have thought that the book has a life of its own, and the pages are changing day by day...

If you have ever ridden a motor bike than you must read Ogri, the every day mishaps of biking, but I guess if you are a biker, then Ogri will already be known to you. The drawings have so much details with stories within stories, you will be finding things each time you look.

An easy read for those days you want to lay back and have not have to think to much.
There's loads of detail within the pictures that you don't always see the first time of reading.
I'll be definitely getting books 1 & 2 .

I bought for my husband who is an OGRI fan. He likes it but but says that he prefers the oldies 1970 stories which are much better. Fast delivery, arrived in a acouple of days.
