The Dark Newt!

Although I've been working full time in British comics for over 30 years, one of the standout moments for me was creating a brand new character for one of my all-time favourite comics, The Dandy. I'd drawn other strips for the comic but The Dark Newt was the only one created from scratch by myself. A pondlife parody of Batman, The Dark Newt ran as a six part series in the summer of 2012. This episode is from The Dandy No.3592.

Will The Dark Newt and his sidekick Sarcastic Tadpole ever return? I don't know, but I'd certainly be happy to bring him back. There are a million tales still to tell about life in the small pond. Well, one or two anyway. It is only a small pond after all.
