Britain’s premier cult cartoonists and animators Modern Toss bring their unique brand of stylishly
cack-handed drawing and precision satire to Forge & Co in Shoreditch this October for an
unmissable celebration of ten years at the forefront of the groundbreaking shit scribbling business
and the launch of their blockbusting new book, ‘A Decade in the Shithouse’.
Who are Modern Toss?
The scurrilous, global cult comic Modern Toss is the work of Jon Link and Mick Bunnage. As
writers, cartoonists, and animators they’ve taken Modern Toss in many different directions- from
challenging late night television to cutting edge advertising, and from international design
magazines to greeting card racks. This year a Kickstarter campaign for their 10th anniversary book
‘A Decade in the Shithouse’ became the UK’s second biggest ever comic crowdfunding success,
exceeding their target within 48 hours of going live. The book is due for release in September of this
year. Their work features regularly in The Guardian, Private Eye magazine and The Sunday Times
