2016 is already shaping up to be a vintage year.
In case you've forgotten, Dennis The Menace first appeared in The Beano 65 years ago next month! That may well be noted in the usual places, I suspect. (Gnasher didn't make his debut until August 1968!)
And myself and Nika will be doing you sketches of The Beano stars as well as giving away badges and comics and all kinds of stuff at various events this year:
Saturday Feb 13th Bolton (we'll be giving a little talk and demonstration here too!)
Saturday/Sunday March 5/6 Cardiff- our first time in Wales (and my first time in Cardiff, though not Nika's strangely enough, she made a school visit from Greece in 1995!)
Saturday/Sunday June 25/26 Exeter
July 2/3 Glasgow where I'll also be presenting this year's award for Outstanding Contribution to Comics!
We'll also be at one London show at least this year, one in Liverpool, another in Birmingham, most probably Bournemouth in August too, and excitingly, shows are being finalized in France, Spain and Greece!
