He's all-new and he's all-newt! He's The Dark Newt and he's coming to The Dandy next Wednesday (July 18th)!
You may remember me mentioning that I was working on a new series? Well this is it. The Dark Newt runs for six issues, in full page adventures starting in The Dandy No.3590 next week.
This is the first time I've solely created a character for The Dandy. (Kid Cops and Postman Prat were created by the editors and passed to me to develop.) I'm very proud to have created a new strip for one of my lifelong favourite comics in The Dandy's 75 anniversary year but I'm also a bit apprehensive about the reaction. I'm hoping readers like it. I certainly enjoyed writing and drawing it.
Meet The Dark Newt, - next Wednesday!
