What is Torsobear?
Teddy Ruxpin via True Detective. Inspired by the original short story featured in Glenn Møane and Magnus Aspli’s Outré anthology, Yarns from Toyburg continues to follow rookie detective Ruxby Bear and his wooden partner officer Hazbrow, as they investigate further and fall deeper into the intrigue surrounding a number of dismembered teddies. Other stories follow the exploits of cheery Toyburg’s broken citizens in the same destructive vein.

Why should we pick this up?
‘The best contribution to Outré #2 by far (in both art and writing) has to be Torsobear by Brett Uren… It is beautiful, stunning, and haunting. And I wanted more.’ – Max Delgado, Unleash The Fanboy

‘It reads like Raymond Chandler meets Teddy Ruxpin with a generous dose of Robert Crumb and we’d love to see a full series of it.’ – Pipedream Comics

‘The art style and color choices made it feel like a more disturbing and adult Hanna Barbera piece, and the blend of issues such as racism, crises of faith, and horrific crimes with a world of toys resonated with me.’ – Jodi Scaife, Fanboy Comics
