If It's Saturday It Must Be Slap-Up Feast Time

I started this Annual unofficial Beano/Dandy freelancers dinner
in 2009 and although we've missed one or two years, and some
invitees never do reply or attend, possibly suspecting a fiendish trap of some kind, we have had quite a few memorable moments.
This year we welcomed
Alan Ryan, Laura Howell, Lew Stringer, Nigel Auchterlounie, Danny Pearson, Barrie Appleby, Paul Palmer, Hunt Emerson, Emily McGorman-Bruce, Gordon Volke and Beano Betty herself, Claire.
We nearly had Sam Emms (Spectra), Tommy Donbavand, Andy Fanton, Hugh Raine, Leslie Stannage, Duncan Scott, Steve Bright, Nika Nartova and even Dave Sutherland too, but they all had to decline for various very good reasons!
Maybe next year we'll have all of them and even more.

Sorry I couldn't be there. Hopefully next year. Great to see you all had a fun night! I trust at least one of you commented: "Ho ho! Now for a feed!" as the food arrived, while another licked their lips and said: "Sloo!"
