Scott of the Antarctic

100 years ago today Captain Scott taught his band to play in the Antarctic. Their fingers were too cold to play the instruments. It was tragic. Just some shivery singing and gloved fingers thumping on guitars. Incredibly the album went to number one and stayed there for 13 weeks. Only to be knocked off the top by Adele's album '45 minutes of crying while eating cake'.

I think that paragraph is respectful enough to the incredible bravery of Scott, Oates and the rest, isn't it? Almost as respectful as this episode of Nuke Noodle from last year:

Nuke on the cover

Yep, so buy the Dandy which is out today! This cover is by Wayne Thompson who draws the new-look Bananaman. Or you can read old Bananaman strips by the late John Geering in The Beano.

Happy New Year!

For 2012, Nuke Noodle (it's in The Dandy, you must buy it! Despite what certain people are saying it's actually great, and that's not because I'm biased) is going through a re-vamp with the drawing. Now I am back in England and working full-time as a cartoonist I have more time to work on the pictures. I hope you like it. Here's a preview of the forthcoming Winston Churchill episode that will appear in about 4 weeks time. Until then, the artwork remains not so good...

And the last bit of business from 2011, my Private Eye Christmas cartoon.
