third issue of the DFC!

Hooray, it's DFC picnic time! John Blake by Philip Pullman and John Aggs is picking up the pace and looking as striking as ever, and Kate Brown's Spider Moon just gets more and more beautiful. I love her clouds and underwater magic.

Here's my strip, Vern and Lettuce next to the fabulous Etherington brothers' Monkey Nuts. Lorenzo just sent a note to say he and Bob had put my picture of Lettuce upon on their Blink Twice blog, which made me very happy. You can get peeks and synopses, updated weekly, on the DFC website, it's well worth a look.

These are the covers to the second and third issues. (We're all taking turns designing the covers.)

Thanks! I went on a picnic today and it looked just like that! Except no little animal types, so maybe not.

mmmm.... your picnic was just like that? You sure know how to hold a good picnic!

So, what does DFC stand for? I tried looking on the website but couldn't find an answer.

It's really a 'what do you want it to be, baby?' sort of thing. The letters means something different every issue. I heard one of the editors provisionally called it the 'David Fickling Comic' and no one fixed that so the letters stuck.

Oh, man, little bunnies on a picnic all falling into teacups! *cute overload*

My boys still love Vern & Lettuce and we're into issue 3 of The DFC. We really want to see Vern & Lettuce on the front cover of The DFC!!

Thanks so much! Funnily enough, that's what I'm working on just at this moment! But you'll have to wait a little longer...

Yeah!!! Vern & Lettuce on THE COver It's A MUST!

Great, can't wait to see a Vern & Lettuce front cover - hope it features the moles doing something outrageous. I think the moles would look good as rock stars myself and Vern & Lettuce can be the groupies!

I think The DFC is something I'm going to want my boys to look after and treasure. It would be really great if the DFC could sell folders that you can store DFC copies in. Vern & Lettuce and Sausage & Carrots would need to have pride of place. Any chance you have a word with the powers that DFC?

DFC folders
Yes, that's a great idea! Right now I'm storing mine in an ArtSafe folder I bought at Atlantis in east London. But it would be great to have something DFC personalised, I'll submit the idea. It'll mean just as much (if not more!) coming from you, so here's the e-mail address: info@thedfc.co.uk

Hey, post a link to a photo of your boys (or e-mail it to me at sarah at jabberworks dot co dot uk) and I'll try to do a picture of them with Vern & Lettuce for one of my morning sketches. Early fans are the best! :-)

Re: DFC folders
Wow being in a picture with Vern & Lettuce would make their year! I'll email you over a photo ASAP. Thanks!!!
