Support the Beano!

Just like these characters do.
Of course there's The Dandy and BeanoMAX too, they deserve your support as well. End of commercial. For today!

I love it Nigel, will it be in colour or in the Beano? It's a nice design.

I'd like to see you do some Beano front covers with all the characters rather than ones by Barrie Appleby (an amazing artist) which is just pictures of Dennis and Gnasher.

Maybe something for Dangerous Dan's return? Fingers crossed!

Hey Nigel - I'm not too sure, but since you drew him, can you tell if this is Dennis the Menace or not?

It's some lazy ad agency art director tracing Dennis poses instead of bothering to create something new. Happens from time to time, always looks bad and cheap. I still have a problem with Lichenstein passing off poor copies as 'art', so I think any (mis)appropriation of someone elses work is very bad form. But legally, Dennis's trademarks are the red and black sweater and the black spiky hair which as you see they've altered.
