The agency has produced the strip "Four Feet From a Rat" as part of its new publication, which will be handed out with entertainment guide Time Out.

It is the third time the agency has produced such a graphic book for the magazine.

Dermot McPartland of Mother said: "We are currently negotiating with Time Out magazine about more editions of FFFAR appearing.

"Meanwhile we have been approached by a number of media owners about supplying the strip as an episodic series next year too."

He added that Time Out New York was currently looking at running a similar series of comics about the city.
