What's Next?

I'm quite enjoying the DFC, some strips more than others (I love Super Animal Adventure Squad, Monkey Nuts and Good Dog, Bad Dog especially), but with the line-up having changed slightly recently, it got me to thinking - does anyone know who else is lined up for future issues?

I remember reading that Jamie Smart is supposed to be doing an actual strip for it somewhen (good thing!) and I believe Laura Howell is doing some stuff (also a good thing).

Who else is getting ready to launch some comic goodness within the DFC's pages?

Hi Squelchy (alias other things :wink: ), I can tell you that "Sneaky", the strip I've been drawing with Peadar O Guilin on the writing side, is starting in issue ten, and I believe (although I'm sure he'll tell me if I'm wrong!) Jamie's strip "Fish Head Steve" is starting sometime around then too. And, according to his blog, Gary Northfield also has a strip starting in a few weeks, which looks quite adorable and which I'm looking forward to very much!

In the meantime - shameless plug coming up here - why not check out my DFC strip that's running for the next few weeks in the Guardian's Comic section on Saturdays? Episode 1 online here: ... 42,00.html
