Nearly on the shelves

Any minute now, the Beano Book will be out- I know it's still June, and we're six months away from Christmas, but it really is out very soon- and I can heartily recommend buying it. I know I will be for one, so why not join the many thousands of us and get one too? I'm betting it's full of good stuff. Hey, why not grab The Dandy too why you're at it?

I'd be a fool not to get it! Loving the cover now, much better than the one we saw on Amazon a while back - I'm glad they centred your drawing, now I love it! :)

Yes the early one was just a prototype mock-up for the catalogues; they over-saturated the colour a bit, too. This one was hand-coloured like The Beano annual cover ought always to be, and looks pretty much as it was when I scanned it in.

I can tell, the colours were very bright and the whole thing looked very unfinished. It looks far nicer now - the colours are wonderful, I'm imaging this was 'RTW' and not Nika?

This was hand-coloured in my studio by RTW on one of her days in this year! Not her fault, she's got another job, so she's not as reliable as Nika but RTW will be on TV with me next month.

The colours look wonderful, both have lovely choices of colour - they go wonderfully with your work! Ooh, what TV show?
