One of the things I enjoy most about drawing comics is getting the chance to depict funny facial reactions. After all, humour comics should be a laugh, so why not go to town on exaggerating the characters when the situation needs it?
Here's a panel from this week's Watch-Hog strip in The Beano that I was pleased with, with Rasher reacting to the stench of a mouldy bone. Emphasised of course by the cascading sweat beads of the type that Ken Reid often added to his characters.
This issue of The Beano is out today, continuing the slightly new direction to the comic that began with its 75th anniversary issue. Some people love it, some nostalgists who are weary of modern comics hate it, but at least they're all talking about it! Personally I think the comic is looking fresh and funny these days but don't take my word for it, - buy it and judge for yourselves!
