Roy Lichtenstein's Schooldays
Here's a reveal of my new strip that I mentioned a few weeks ago. It's a one-off called Roy Lichtenstein's Schooldays and it appears in Viz No.225, out today! (And rather than gain full credit for the strip, Lichtenstein-like, I'd better point out that although the concept and basics of the strip were mine, Viz editors Graham Dury and Simon Thorp rewrote the script somewhat, improving on my original version.)
The cover, by Simon Thorp, also has a Lichtenstein theme, showing the pop artist the same amount of respect that he showed all those uncredited comic creators whose work he based his paintings on.
You'll find Viz on the top shelves of newsagents across the land. 52 pages of adult humour for £3.20. See the website for more details and a free preview of Simon Thorp's Johnny Fartpants page, set at Maggie Thatcher's funeral.
