hot off the press!

The Guardian presents Super Animal Adventure Squad and Vern and Lettuce!

Cor, blimey!

It's funny seeing Vern and Lettuce go all the way back to Issue 1. That's when I was still nervously thinking, can I really make more than one or two full-page comics? I felt like I was telling a bit of a fib when I confidently said to publisher David Fickling, 'Of course I can do a weekly comic!' I really didn't know if I could, but I wasn't about to tell him that and miss my chance.

Edit: Thanks to Richard and Molly Bruton for the plug on today's Forbidden Planet blog.

That's great! *HIGH FIVE* (As a Brit, I don't take naturally to those, but after 10 years in the US I think I can fake it) You're all superstar-ish now! V&L are going to be getting recognized in the street, mobbed everywhere they go, etc. They're each going to need to invest in one of those glasses/moustache/fake nose disguises so they can make it down to the corner shop and back.

(Feel free to consider that a sketch request...)

Hurrah! Yes, Vern and Lettuce like dressing up so I will try to catch them at it one of these days...

I especially bought the guardian this morning and went to the local coffee shop for a coffee and breakfast while enjoying your comic. Fabulous work!

Ooh, I hope you had a nice bit of cake, too! ;-D

i've seen this one before but i'm looking forward to seeing the other early v&l's, most of which i missed.
interesting, too, to see the guardian using strips which have already been in the dfc, rather than before they're in it -- is this the first time they've done that? must say, to me it makes a lot more sense to do it this way round.

Oh yes - I remember telling the boys at DFC that I could definitely manage to make 12 issues of a comic in time for the launch, no problem. Inside I was thinking, oh my god, what am I saying, how can I possibly do this???

I guess it turned out ok.

I guess so! Ha ha...
