My Nan Knows Your Mum - comics by kids for World Book Week (part 2)

Nan / Naan, do you see what I just did there? Those were the year 8 & 9 pupils from Gloucester Academy, getting a couple of Comic Art Masterclasses to round off an over-extended World Book Week, whereby everyone wanted me on World Book Day itself, and settled for a date nearby. They all went home with a comic, containing a strip by every one of them and a caricature by me. And what great titles they came up with.

Wanborough Primary in Swindon must take credit for the best title of the month. Knock Knock Blood Bath! would be a great title for a movie, wouldn't it?

And Revenge Of Sir Bobalob The Noob is another classic. The kids this week were such a delight to work with and full of such novel ideas, there's nothing much to say but to admire their wonderful work.

The celebrities they suggested to Tread On A Worm were Cristiano Ronaldo, Kim Kardashian, Donald Trump, Simon Cowell, John Cena and Taylor Swift.

Kev F Sutherland, as well as writing and drawing for The Beano, Marvel, Doctor Who et al, runs Comic Art Masterclasses in schools, libraries and art centres - email for details, and follow him on Facebook and Twitter. View the promo video here
