O! Poopy Poopy Dippy Doo!! - new comics by kids

A lovely new batch of comics by pupils in my Comic Art Masterclasses, from schools in Stratford On Avon, Hertfordshire and Swindon. Delightful and imaginative as always, this selection from the past week includes a novel twist - a variant edition.

Stinky Bottle Man was the product of a mega-class of 60 pupils (I can usually only work with a maximum class size of 30).  One group (Oxford class) got a comic containing their strips, and the other (Middlesex class) got one containing their strips. It's hard work, and I've never done a group comic in that way before (they get commensurately less individual attention from me and half don't get their caricatures drawn) but it's quite satisfying to see I can pull off such a feat.

The celebrities they chose for the "treading on a worm" routine were Miley Cyrus, Gary Barlow, Simon Cowell (twice), Niall Horan, and Katy Perry.

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.
