    The Sixties was an iconic decade, conjuring images of marked generational conflict and “sex, drugs and rock-n-roll”, but also of the Second Vatican Council (1962–5), the “permissive” legislation and Britain’s counter-culture, as well as the social transformations of the period encompassing ecumenism, the advent of the women’s movement and the beginning of the Troubles.
    
     
    Better known as the creator of the BBC television series Captain Pugwash, John Ryan (1921–2009), through his weekly illustrations in the Catholic Herald, offered a topical interrogation of the British Catholic Church’s sometimes adaptive, though often inflexible responses to the changes and challenges of the period. This collection of Ryan’s cartoons provides a personal portrait of the extraordinary ups and downs of religion in the Sixties—encompassing the machinations of popes and cardinals, the testimony of expert witnesses, runaway priests, radical reformists and lay protest movements.

    Welcome to Endtown, a community of animal-like mutants and “impure” humans infected with a mutagenic virus living below Earth’s post-apocalyptic surface. Driven by hunger, they venture out only in search of food, but must face bloodthirsty, mutated monstrosities and the constant threat of the Topsiders; un-mutated, technologically advanced humans bent on exterminating all mutations in order to create a genetically purified humanity. In A Fistful of Beans, droll protagonist Albert Anderson returns to Endtown after a hunt for food with the only non-perishable item the community can’t stand—canned beans. With help from his rhinoceros girlfriend, Gustine, and the questionable tactics of Professor Nikolai Mallard, he must avoid the town’s bean-focused fury at all costs.
