Rock icon David Bowie has published a list of his favourite reading material and revealed he is a big fan of comic books.

The Ashes to Ashes hitmaker has detailed his 'Top 100 Books' in a post on his official website, and the rundown includes classics such as Lady Chatterley's Lover by D.H. Lawrence, 1984 by George Orwell, Homer's Iliad, and The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

But in among the highbrow literature, Bowie shows his humorous side by admitting his love for British children's comic The Beano and satirical magazine Private Eye.

He also loves reading adult comic Viz and 1980s underground mag Raw.
