Rebellion have released a few preview pages from the upcoming Cor!! Buster Easter Special, including one I drew (written by John Freeman). This is the start of a three-pager featuring Buster and Delbert and cameos by a multitude of UK comics characters from the past. See how many you recognise! (Some date back to the 19th Century so don't be too hard on yourselves if you don't know them.) 

I really enjoyed drawing these pages and bringing back characters from long ago. The special goes on sale next month but you can pre-order it now direct from the publisher at this link:
Cover art by Neil Googe and Jim Boswell.

Yep, you got those right, Ryan! Well done.

It won't arrive just yet. I'm still finishing the Gums strip even as we speak! Deadline tomorrow. Then the comic will be out in 3 weeks.
