The last Rasher

I understand that there's no Rasher strip in next week's Beano so presumably the one in the current issue is the last. There is one strip that hasn't been published but perhaps that'll be used at a later date. 

Anyway, the strip in the current issue is the last one I drew and, as you can see from the panel above, Rasher takes a holiday by the seaside, which I felt would be appropriate for the final one.

I've really enjoyed writing and drawing the Rasher mini-strips and I hope he'll return one day. In the meantime, I'm busy on Lord Snooty and drawing pages for the 2016 annuals.

Coincidence that Snooty cameos there in the same issue that your first Snooty strip appeared in, then?

Yes it is coincidence because when I drew that last Rasher strip I thought Snooty would either already be running or starting in the issue after. It worked out quite well that the last Rasher and the first Snooty were in the same issue.

I'm sure the last Rasher will appear somewhen. I remember once Bash Street Kids CCTV mini-strip appeared in one issue long after the last one and there weren't any after that!
