Bummy My Knickers Have Exploded - new comics by kids

Here are the latest comics created by pupils in my Comic Art Masterclasses, in Horley, Oxted, Worle, and Wincanton. Four lots of year fives in this lot, for whom you can blame the grans, old men, twerking and trousers falling down. A funny lot, year fives.

The day at Wincanton was organised (and paid for) by The Beano themselves, which is the first time they've taken me into schools. I do hope they were impressed, it would be nice to do more.

The celebrities they chose for the "treading on a worm" routine were Declan Donnelly, Miley Cyrus, Nelson Mandela, Benedict Cumberbatch, David Walliams and Katy Perry (with Simon Cowell being suggested but not finally chosen in 4 out of 6 classes).

Kev F Sutherland, as well as writing Bananaman in The Beano, runs Comic Art Masterclasses in schools, libraries and art centres - email for details, and follow him on Facebook and Twitter. He's been writing and drawing comics for 25 years, he must know something.

Hi, Kev! Looks great!

Can I ask you about your working method? Why do you do the drawing instead of having the kids do the drawing? Do you draw it right there in front of them, or do you collect their ideas and put it together later? How long would one of your workshops run?
