I've just had my proposals for two brand new mini-strip series approved for The Beano and they should start in the comic sometime in October or November. I can't reveal any more about them yet but they're all-new strips, not revivals of old characters. They're likely to have short runs of six weeks or so as The Beano likes to keep things fresh these days. Two episodes are already drawn (there's one masked out above) and I'm looking forward to setting to work on the rest. More news soon!
