New! Newcastle this weekend!

On Saturday and again on Sunday, me and Nika will be doing our best to celebrate The Beano in the mighty city of Newcastle, so come and join us and see how we draw Dennis The Menace, Minnie The Minx, a Bash Street Kid or two...even Dangerous Dan!

It's our last convention appearance this year, having done Sunderland, Glasgow, Dublin, Birmingham, Kendal, Liverpool, Belfast up to now. We have four or five dates for 2016 lined up already, and if we can arrange it, two especially interesting ones in places The Beano usually doesn't reach. Until now. We'll see.

Last weekend we did a Film and Comic Con in Belfast. We had such big queues waiting for a sketch we had to charge a small fee- but it didn't make any difference, still had a big queue. Anyway, we had a busy two days and an amusing coach ride each morning with the actors from Dr Who and Star Trek and so on, one or two of whom I recognised. Oh, and Peter Purves turns out to be a really lovely fellow.
Next up, Cassandra is expecting us in Newcastle to do the same thing all over again, so see you there 21/22 November!
