The Big Reveal

The excitement is mounting and today Nigel Parkinson's blog has more details about the brand new revamped Dandy that goes on sale in two weeks time!

All is still not revealed, such as the identities of most of the characters in the new-look comic (or who's drawing them come to that), - but that would spoil the surprise wouldn't it?

I can tell you that I'm drawing a new character for it. That's him in the blurred image above, trying to break through the time barrier from the far future of two weeks hence to reach you today. But time travel has nothing to do with the strip so he can't break through....yet!

The Dandy was the first comic I read as a child. It helped teach me to read, so I'm very pleased and honoured to have been asked to contribute. It's only taken me 45 years to break into the comic since I read my first copy. :)

Wednesday October 27th, the new-look Dandy, back to weekly schedule and down in price to £1.50. You lucky people!

Well the eyes look muddled..a clumsy type character?

Its great news The Dandy is no longer Xtreme..or a mag/comic..
But a comic with lots of new artists and characters..

So looking forward to it..
wonder what the cover will look like.the Dandy logo is nice and cheerful..

The character can be clumsy at times, - but that doesn't define him.

I've no idea what the cover will be like. If the logo on Nigel's page is the one they're using it's completely different to the one I was expecting. Time will tell...
