The Zoom: great satirical comic created by 12-year-old British schoolboy

The Zoom is a great British satirical comic written and drawn by a 12-year-old named Zoom Rockman. I picked up his eighth issue last weekend at a comics show in London and it was a delight, and not in some patronising "Oh, it's quite good for something done by a kid" way. The Zoom is funny, pointed, and satirical, and Rockman's busy, dark drawings and crowded lettering are excellent camouflage for a sophisticated and irreverent wit. Issues 1-7 (created while Zoom was between the ages of 9 and 12) are online as free reads, while the new issue (which is excellent) can be had for a mere GBP1.99. It's money well spent.
