Here is some very exciting news to come back from holiday to: it looks like the next batch of DFC Library titles have been officially announced! They are, from L-R:
- Super Animal Adventure Squad - a hilarious and hugely enjoyable strip by one of my very favourite cartoonists, James Turner,
- Baggage by The Etherington Brothers- your guess is as good as mine, as excitingly this one is ALL NEW, but based on Bob & Lorenzo's previous form, and the sneak tidbits I've gleaned about it here and there it promises to be pretty mind-boggling, and:
- The Boss by the marvellous John Aggs and the similarly marvellous (it's genetics, see) Patrice Aggs - one of the great early strips in the DFC, a fantastic mystery crimebusting school story - great mix of old-school British comics feel with something fresh and modern, I'm really happy to see this one being collected.
And hey, quick: go buy Mo-bot High WHILE STOCKS LAST.
Did I mention I'd been on holiday? Look, proof:
That last one is, in fact, the BIGGEST PENCIL IN THE WORLD, as seen at Cumberland Pencil Museum. Yes, really. That is a place that exists. And we went there. Come on, I'm a comics artist - you think I can see a sign that says 'Pencil Museum' and not go in? Well I cannot.
Right, that's enough of that. More - and possibly, if I don't talk myself out of it again first, a Bit Of An Announcement, tomorrow!
