Pansy Potter wrecks the Beano office twice!!


Charles Griggs The Beano 8th Feb 1958


First Christmas Beano 1938. Hugh McNeill

Thanks to phil-comics at ebay..

Note that both strips have Pansy kicking down the office door..and dropping a penny/sweet..

Its interesting the way the two stories are similar in the way they introduce Pansy Potter...


16th December 1989 by Barry Glennard
Pansy didn't wreck the Beano office the last time she was introduced..

Malcolm Judge is great at so many different ways of drawing speed...








Also the lettering whizz are done in unique ways.love the zoooom! overlapping..



I also love the multiple Billy's in one panel..

No other Billy Whizz artist has topped the variety..its just brilliant..

Smudge does have a Dad!!



The Beano 21st August 1982..

Smudge's Dad is a frogman on the oil rig so that is where he is..
Also love the details John Geering adds to his drawings like the flower very put out by Smudge using its flowerpot...also the ducks in the rain..and the mouse..

John does a great effect in the first panel showing heavy rain the house in the background is suggested in diagonal rain strokes..also great expressive faces..

looking forward to the 1980's era featured in The Beano and Dandy Heroes book 2011 coming in late August..

Jim Watson


Can anyone help with the artists name please for Wally's Weirdies.

There were not one but two winners of the second Cor-medy contest: The Spectre Inspector and Wally's Weirdies. Both debuted as regular sets in Cor!! issue dated 20th April, 1974 (Easter number) and survived the merger with Buster shortly after.
Other contestants were: Jinx Street, Hickory Dickory Doc, Willy - the World's Worst Werewolf and Our Kid. thanks to klakadak-ploobadoof for info..

The Beano 2005 Comic Idol's Zap Zodiac



Steve Horrocks
8th Jan 2005
Sadly the strip didn't take off despite winning the contest..mind you Christmas Carole might have been too much if that won...every week a Christmas theme..
Hugh Dunnit was the other strip...


Home Invation by David Sutherland (New in The Beano in the Comic Idol contest 2010)reminded me of Zap Zodiac and this Buster strip..
The Twitopians..go to link to see..

More info on Zap Zodiac..

Uh, Oh Si Co! and Samuel Creeps from Nutty



http://www.beanotown.com/index.php?id=408





After talking about Cor-medy Choice which Cor comic did in the 70's along comes The Beano idol in this weeks issue..where we the reader can choose our favourites between three..
Home Invation (David Sutherland) , Meebo and Zuky (Laura Howell)and Uh, Oh Si Co! Nigel Parkinson..all of them good..all should be in The Beano..

Uh, Oh Si Co! stood out just a little bit more for me and love the mum going crazy..it does remind me and others of Vic Volcano from the 90's Beano drawn by Robert Nixon...also in Nutty was Samuel Creeps a posh kid who got the better of bullies and also can be very strong at times..
Bob McGrath drew it the Three Bears artist..
So old ideas refreshed..
