Yes, as some of you guessed from last week's tricky teaser, I recently got the job of writing and drawing Billy Whizz for The Beano. On the strength of the Badd Lads stuff I did for the current Dandy annual, another strip originated by Malcolm Judge, the Ed asked me for a traditional Malcolm Judge style Billy.
And traditional is what I'm giving him! Here's the whole family, in my second Billy Whizz page, appearing in this week's Beano.
Elsewhere in the Beano, parents are being modernised all over the place -- both Minnie the Minx and Dennis the Menace have got shiny new modern-looking parents. But not Billy -- the ed and I decided we'd go right back to the bow-tie and moustache wearing original Mr Whizz.
For my part in that decision, I think bow ties and moustaches are funny. (No offence intended to any bow-tie wearing moustachioed men -- or indeed women -- reading this)
