Horrocks has been involved in the New Zealand comic scene since the mid 1980s, when he co-founded Razor with Cornelius Stone and had his work published in the University of Auckland student magazine Craccum. Later in the decade he began to get international recognition, having work published by Australia's Fox Comics and the American Fantagraphics Books. He then moved to the United Kingdom where he self-published several mini-comics and co-founded Le Roquet, a comics annual. Upon returning to New Zealand in the mid 1990s, Horrocks had a half-page strip called 'Milo's Week' in the current affairs magazine New Zealand Listener from 1995 to 1997. He also produced Pickle, published by Black Eye Comics, in which the 'Hicksville' story originally ...more


I wrote and drew this new issue of the Pickle mini-comic in November and it was first distributed at the New Zealand Arts Foundation Art Awards (on account of they made me an Arts Laureate!!!). Now I’m making it available for public purchase. It’s a very personal response to earthquakes (geological and political), health dramas, moving to Wellington, and the faultlines in which we all live....

Amazing. This novel of the Norman Conquest is written in a made-up "shadow tongue" - a kind of pseudo Anglo-Saxon that's intelligible to a modern reader, but manages to convey some of the sound and feel of the language spoken in 11th century England. ...more

Gillian Tindall
“For years, walking round London, I had been aware of the actual land, lying concealed but not entirely changed or destroyed, beneath the surface of the nineteenth- and twentieth-century city. It has been said that 'God made the country and man made the town', but that is not true: the town is simply disguised countryside. Main roads, some older than history itself, still bend to avoid long-dried marshes, or veer off at an angle where the wall of a manor house once stood. Hills and valleys still remain; rivers, even though entombed in sewer pipes, still cause trouble in the foundations of neighbouring buildings and become a local focus for winter mists. Garden walls follow the line of hedgerows; the very street-patterns have been determined by the holdings of individual farmers and landlords, parcels of land some of which can be traced back to the Norman Conquest. The situation of specific buildings - pubs, churches, institutions - often dates from long distant decisions and actions on the part of men whose names have vanished from any record.”
Gillian Tindall, The Fields Beneath
