Thaddeus Twatt 1: The Fearful Fate Of Friggia

Terry Hooper-Scharf
Black and White
27 pp

Price: £3.50

Eccentric scientific genius Professor Thaddeus Twatt has decided to look in on one of his late father’s experiments… ...but then his nephew, Tomas, arrives for the Summer. Tomas has been warned that his uncle is a little “odd” but expects to have a carefree holiday in the Somerset countryside. That was his plan. 

In the late 1940s, Twatt’s father, along with other scientists, had created a miniature galaxy in chambers deep beneath the Cheddar countryside. A miniature galaxy into which groups of settlers flew. After decades it seems time to visit the “Twatt-verse” and see how things have gone. 

 Tomas thinks it’s all a joke...until he is miniaturised! The duo find the entrance to the mini-verse mined and then their craft crash-lands on the first planet they approach. 

They find what seems to be a barren, frozen world —until captured by a group of survivors and a story is told of betrayal, sabotage and a great “Worm” that devastates cities. 

 Are the duo trapped of frozen Friggia forever…?
