New term at Hygiene High!

My first new strip for 2017 starts next week in Epic magazine, published by D.C. Thomson. Hygiene High features the grottiest, grimiest kids since the days of The Swots and the Blots, and they're enrolled into a school that aims to smarten them up. It's a daunting task for their head teacher Auntie Bacteria! 

Written by Niall Murray and drawn by me, Hygiene High is a two page strip featuring six stinky kids; Pee-Yew Jimmy, Bean Jean, Snotty Scotty, the Bin Twins, and Pooey Louis. The sort of gross humour about farts and bogeys that adults sometimes disapprove of but kids enjoy, and Epic is aimed at kids so hopefully it'll go down well. (I really like the flies the designers have added to the page borders!)

The magazine also includes a page of mini-strips drawn by me; Eric Fail, Terrible Movies, and Zombie Sports...

...and there's also another chapter of Overreaction Man by Alex Collier and Steve Bright.

That's all in Epic No.127, on sale from newsagents and supermarkets from Wednesday 11th January!

Belated Happy New Year Lew!

I know I'm not the target audience for Epic, but that Zombie Baseball player brought a few chuckles.

Also, love your new blog logo (blogo?) - very Odhams looking.
