Hope everyones had a good Christmas. Just released the latest issue of Last Geek in Space. It's a Cartoon Museum special featuring Mark Stafford and Steve Marchant. Mark's GN with Dave Hine The Bad Bad Place was one of my fave reads of the last year. Episode's on all podcast platforms or the link below! Cheers.
I am Ahridemon sentencing you to death. For all liberals must die. Oh yes, racism is good. All who are against racism will be punished.
I would love to see the competion cartoons At the time of Covid, talked about on Radio 4 this morning. Where are they?
My visit this July to the Cartoon Museum.. it's an amazing museum. Worth a visit.
The Centennial Anniversary of The Beano Until 2038
Any update on expected opening date? We will be traveling to London the week of May 19th
Hi, I sent my entry for 'The Cartoonist of the Year Competition' to the address advertised on your press releases and website to be delivered before the closing date and the Post Office have returned it today because it was undeliverable. After calling the museum and looking at your Facebook, I understand you moved before the closing date. Please may you consider my entry and others who've followed the instructions advertised to enter the competition and have had the same happen, as it seems fair to do so. Thank you.
I visited today with my daughter and we enjoyed looking around. She even recognised some of the cartoons. ( I may also have cheekily hidden some rocks around )
Check out and get "You Talking To Me?" on all kinds and sizes of prints you need!
OK, this is driving me round the bend. Does anyone please know anything about a cartoonist called "Matt" (sic) who drew caricatures for the Sunday Graphic in the 1930s? This is not the more obvious MATT who is popular in the Telegraph, as Mr Pritchett was not born until 30 years later!
