Pansy Notter - Boisterous

My Pansy Potter strips start appearing in this week's Beano. Quarter page gag strips starring the Strongman's Daughter, they're the first things I've written and drawn in the Beano for five years and are great fun to do. Of course, it's the strips The Beano rejects that makes the final comic so good, and above you can see another idea that didn't make the cut (hence it still being in biro-scribble form).

As well as not featuring the eponymous star (though eagle-eyed readers will have noticed this week's Bananaman story Creepy Pasta also doesn't feature its title character), it was considered too wordy or adult or sunnink. Enjoy, a blog-only lost gem.
