One slight problem I have is that I get ideas from things around me, but I'm working (as far as The Dandy is concerned) three months ahead of the schedule... So I got this idea for a Mr Meecher The Uncool Teacher page about conkers in November, but that's ideally when it should've been published...
I managed to persuade them to bring it forward a bit, but it's a difficult one to resolve because things going on around you are always likely to give you ideas... I suppose I could squirrel them away for a whole year, but then you never can be sure if your strip -- or even the comic in which it's published -- is still going to be around in a year's time!
