Backwards Burd is a band of comic artists that tour the UK drawing countless people as Sloths.We began as an illustration student society at the University of East London in 2013. After graduating, we figured that what we were doing was pretty damn fun and kept doing it. Backwards Burd comics vary from mischievous school animals to diary comics about too many cupcakes, also a comic tackling the issue of depression and not forgetting Kitty Jenkins the cosmic cat.

Highlight Of the Comiket
Backwards Burd: Joel
Don’t let the cover fool you. Joel isn’t happy. He couldn’t tell you why. Sometimes it isn’t that easy. He barely knows what’s going on inside his own head…
‘Joel’ tells a story of mental illness from within the imagination, and of the effects it can have out in reality.
This episode is the first of four in the series. Written by Phil Robinson and Illustrated by Shane Melisse.
