Attack Of Donald Trump - new comics by kids from Ireland & Birmingham

I've probably bored you already with my travels to Ireland (it took two journeys and an unimaginable amount of money to visit two schools), and I've certainly seen an inordinate amount of Birmingham (plane diverted to: 1, nights spent in hotel there: 2, days in school there: 2, Socks gig there: 1) all of which was delightful. No really, it was, even the diverted flight. But look at the comics that have come out of all the Comic Art Masterclasses. Boy, those year 5s in Kings Heath be hating on The Donald, yoh.

Here are the comics from Kennedy College in New Ross, Wexford. You may spot the tiniest bit of graffitti on one of the covers that reads "Up The RA". If you know what that means - and, no, I didn't to begin with - you may have an idea of the fun some 1st and 2nd years in County Wexford can be.

Jake's Nipples, and a totally innocent title called Fluffy Malone, which I'm sure isn't cyber-bullying in any way. Welcome to Dublin 12.

And My Thigh's Moustache Is Evil takes the prize for mostly inexplicable title of the week. I can only apply for using "inexplicable" twice in one blog. Now, which celebrities did this lot of ne'erdaewells choose to tread on a worm..?

They chose Jessica Ennis-Hill, Michael Jackson, Kim Jong-Un, Tom Cruise, Stephen Hawking, Barack Obama, David Bowie, and one that, sadly, I failed to record and can't for the life of me remember.

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. After a morning or an afternoon every pupil goes away with a photocopied comic containing a strip by every single one of them, and an individual caricature by Kev F. Please email for details, and follow him on Facebook and Twitter. View the promo video
