June and July

My engagements diary isn't as full as previous years due to various factors but I'm still doing some events:

June 9th Wythenshawe Comic Con find out more here

June 21st Macclesfield library find out more here

June 30th Bradford Literature Festival find out more here

July 27,28,29 London Film and Comic Con Olympia https://www.londonfilmandcomiccon.com/

and a few more to be announced later. Come along and get a free badge, and possibly a genuine hand drawn Beano sketch of your favourite character!

Nika fans should note she will not be at any of these events, but Nigel Auchterlounie, Beano writer, will be at the Bradford one. But be there by about 10, that one is only a 75 minute event!

2018 In The Flesh

Fewer Comic Con appearances this year for me and Nika-  I've already done the first one, at Liverpool Exhibition Centre.

The next one is March 31st in Northwich, in Cheshire, nothing in April yet, let's see how this one goes.

Then we're doing Blackpool and Oldham in May, and in June, Macclesfield and a special event in Bradford which includes an appearance by just me at the Bradford Literary festival on 30th June. And in July we'll be somewhere or other.

There will be others, but for now that's the list. Nika fans should know she may not be at all or indeed any of these venues, as she now has an 11 week old to look after!

Channel4 News: Dennis Still a Menace


After several months Channel 4 finally did their Beano piece about focus groups with CEO Emma Scott bigging up the brand and reassuring parents. Meanwhile Jon Snow (no, obviously not that one) used the M word and our hurridly drawn, probably only to languish on the shelf and not used anyway
comic strip, was not used anyway. So here it is, exclusively. Written by Nigel Auchterlounie, drawn by me.
