(Can anyone give me a last line?) This one's dedicated to Giles Andreae, creator of Purple Ronnie and Edward Monkton, and who wrote the poem for the book I just illustrated, Morris the Mankiest Monster. (He writes poems just a little bit better than me.) You can listen to him talk about poetry and making greeting cards here or listen to him read a funny poem here that was written by a lot of people, like a comics jam. (Do people call it a poetry jam?)

Other item of great interest, Manchester-based eadesmust just made a fab comic about a witch named Hetty Grubb who brews up her own friend named Brian.

PS Just to add, those picture aren't supposed to be Giles. I suddenly remembered my dad describing one of my uncles that way, that's why I added that last thing.

Gahh it's been ages since I thought of Purple Ronnie.

And then he comes back to haunt you! :-D

Purple Ronnie reminds me of using the loo at my (then) girlfriend's (now wife) student house in Reading in the 90s. The smallest room was bedecked with PR cartoons! I didn't realise Giles was him :-) Marvellous.

P.S - Verne & Lettuce was lovely this week. It's not the last one is it? It had that feel.

That's funny about the loo! I bet there were many Giles bedecked loos in studenty Britain.

Urgh, this is the first time in months and months that my DFC hasn't arrived on time! I am itching to see it. No, keep an eye out for next week's Vern and Lettuce! It's a corker, if I say so myself. ;-)

They're all corkers! Even if you do say so yourself :-)

Non-stop and constantly, heh heh.

Oops, that was a completely redundant turn of phrase there.

"longest fly in Britain" leaped out at me before I had the chance to look at that picture properly. I briefly imagined a bluebottle shaped like a long balloon.

I hope it wasn't as big as a balloon, that might give me nightmares.

Thanks for linking my stuff again, I really appreciate it!

Oh and any poem that mentions tea, has got to be a good thing!

Glad to do it, I'm getting really into your comics! They read so well and look swishy stylish at the same time.
