Also in this week's Beano is what I think is the very first Pansy Potter strip I wrote (with my name hidden in a predictable place, you should spot it in seconds) and some excellent strips, including a witty Gruffalo-parodying Little Plum by Stu Munro & Hunt Emerson, and an eye catching (and laugh-out-loud-if-you're-nine-years-old) Tricky Dicky strip by Laura Howell. And let's be thankful we live in a country which still produces a weekly comic that includes the line "Is it just me or is the Prime Minister a potato?" Buy The Beano.
