Aaarrff! Me Hearties!

All aboard the Black Flea for Dandy day!

Todays bumper issue sees the debut of my new series 'Sea Dogs', with a puzzle page chucked in too for good measure!

I'm having great fun doing this strip and rest assured it gets a lot sillier as the weeks go by.

This strip sees a different style for me, it's the first time I've done a funny animals comic and having done this I think it's a direction I'd like to explore further.

This issue also sees the return of 'Strictly come Laughing' winner 'Harry and His Hippo'.
and Jamie Smarts, 'Pre School Prime Minister'

Beryl the Peril's adventures continue this week only on Facebook.

Fellow Dandy scribbler Andy Fanton has posted this sneak peek of his installment of 'Pass the Peril' on his blog.

Why not check out Beryl on and if you have any ideas for Beryl's next installment, then why not post them up on the Dandy's page or drop the editor an email:

The chosen idea will be drawn up by our next mystery artist!

Pass the Peril

I'm pleased to announce that a new version of Beryl the Peril hits the interweb today.

Here's the official blurb:
Drum roll please.... here's the first part of our new Pass the Peril online comic strip! Steven Beckett kicks us off with his take on Beryl the Peril! Now it's up to YOU to decide what happens next! Email in your suggestions by midnight Friday and our next mystery artist will choose the best one, draw it and post up the next part on Monday!

I was really happy to be one of four artists chosen to be involved in this, and it is a thrill for me to bring the first installment to you. Each artist is encouraged to bring their own unique style to the project and you can see my 'Beryl' pictured. Check out the strip here : Pass the Peril.

New series on the way very soon.

I had confirmation today that my new series for The Dandy will start in 3 weeks time.
I can't wait to see it. I'm really excited about it. I hope you all enjoy it too.

More details soon, I don't want to spoil things too much. I will say it's unlike anything I've done previously.

Watch this space.
