Re: Beano comic librarys chat

Robert, I'm so sorry - I don't recall your name (but then I occasionally forget my own, so I hope you'll forgive me). I'd have better luck if I saw your face or your artwork (or both), or if your parents had done you the favour of naming you Rocky or Ferdinand, or similar, but for now, Robert Smith ...

Re: Beano comic librarys chat

Thanks for posting the 'Doggie Dunce' cover, Peter - that sure takes me back. It wasn't just my first work for DCT, it was the very first professional job of my career, drawn over the weekend of 9-10th July, 1983. It was closely followed by my first comic library. Well, it was one I shared with Pete...

Re: DC Thomson creators inteviewed this coming Sunday

I really did intend being there, Lew, and had made plans accordingly, but a house full of projectile vomiters put paid to all schemes at the last minute - including my plot to disguise myself with a heavy beard and glasses (over my own beard and glasses) and heckle you and the DCT mob at the Q&A ses...

Re: DC Thomson creators inteviewed this coming Sunday

You know, Lew - for someone who speaks with great authority on almost every exact detail in this forum, and rightly insists on making sure that accuracy prevails, you ain't half prone to some cracking bloopers.





Sunday was the 11th, by the way. No wonder there was no-one there when I arrived. :P

Re: COMIC LETTERING?

One question though, is the current Broons/Oor Wullie lettering actually hand written or have they printed it using comics sans font or something similar?
It's done using a computer font. I believe it's one of the ones from those wonderful folks at Comicraft:

Re: how did they color comics in the 70s and 80s

On another note Steve Brights wife used photoshop in a wonderful way on Bananaman...very 3D effect.. Point of Information, Mr Chairman! Er....she's not my wife, and she won't thank you for demoting her to the position, Peter. Oh, and the page you followed that post with was one that I coloured I'm ...

Re: Radio 4 Comic reunion 20th at 11,15 am

Excellent! Worth it just to hear Dave Torrie commenting that "Scottish Presbyterians can be quite naughty". And an old clip from the 80's Arena programme, where Al Bernard (Beano sub) introduced himself as "Uncle Al, the kiddies' pal" - wouldn't get away with that these days. The only unfortunate sl...

Re: Shrewsbury International Cartoon Festival

All right, where were you all? I'll need notes from everyone's mum. You missed a great weekend (although the promised sunshine never materialised - so sue me!), and the chance to purchase an exclusive Steve Bright fridge magnet for 50p. Speaking of magnets, I met one. A fine young chap in his mid te...

Re: Radio 4 Comic reunion 20th at 11,15 am

Thanks, Peter. For anyone who was a tad confused (as I was) about the exact details of this one, a quick search reveals the full title of the programme is 'The Reunion', to be broadcast on Sunday, April 20th at 11.15am - 12.00 noon. It will also be repeated on Friday, April 25th, at 9am - 9.45am, an...

PS.....you may want to check the spelling of Bill's surname, John. I'm fairly certain it's McLoughlin.

Re: Upcoming interview: writer Bill McGoughlin

John, ask him if he's still playing the Wednesday 5-a-side football (along with the sprightly Bill Graham), and do let him know that even though I stopped playing about 15 years ago, I still have the bruises...not that I'm pointing any fingers!

These guys are true gentlemen...in the office at least!

Re: Neigh, Neigh and thrice Neigh!

I always felt that RON SPENCER [mid-period 'LITTLE PLUM', WHACKO!', etc.] was the best cartoonist of HORSES in his own time........ Agreed, he was right up there, with his wonderfully knock-kneed nags. Best of all was Norman Thelwell, of course, although I don't know if he ever drew his horses for ...

Roger and wilco, Laura. Sorry you can't make it this year.

Andy, that's what they built the M's 5, 6 and 54 for. A more scenic motorway trip you'd be hard pushed to find...ahem!

Shrewsbury International Cartoon Festival

Okay, so this isn't strictly a comics thing, but there is a crossover feel to it, in that a number of comic artists will be involved, and there will be a heck of a lot of drawing going on. :cheers: Basically, the beautiful town of Shrewsbury will be invaded by all manner of cartoonists in a couple o...
