How A Dandy Shall Make The Dandy Dandier
FOR THE past three and-a-bit years, the job of transcribing my astonishing adventures from my journals to the inter-connected net-work of computation devices has always fallen to my entirely wretched scribe, Mr. A.D Fanton, esquire.
He is not terribly good at his one, simple job, but somehow his woeful incompetence has not stopped him from now finding actual, paying work writing and drawing comic-strips for publication. I do feel pity for his poor publishers, they know not what horror they have unleashed.
Anyhow, Mr. Fanton’s first professional comics assignment is producing a comic-strip cartoon entitled ‘George vs Dragon’ (pictured above), for publication in Britain’s longest-running children’s comic, The Dandy.
Obviously, when I heard he was working for a publication entitled ‘The Dandy’, I asked – nay, DEMANDED! – that I appear in one of these strip-cartoons, as I am surely the dandiest dandy who ever did dandy.
After several lashings from my belt, Mr. Fanton acceded, and so it is with great pride that I can reveal that I do now indeed have a small cameo in one of the George vs Dragon comics. Obviously, it being a children’s comic, my appearance is entirely decent (and I am fully clothed, for once), but still, I am there in all my splendour!
I know not when precisely the comic in question shall see print, but naturally I shall keep you all updated. All I do know is that Mr. Fanton’s run in The Dandy commences on the 27th of October, so mark that date in your diary and be sure to support his latest endeavour!
See you in the funny papers, chums!
