Goodbye Ben… a stupid comic strip (Possibly NSFW).

So, you may have heard, our esteemed editor Ben Sharpe has left The Phoenix. Much sadness all round, as Ben is a marvellous chap and knows his onions when it comes to editing a weekly comic (not a job for the faint-hearted I would hazard). The equally marvellous Will Fickling has picked up the reins and will undoubtedly steer the comic just as steadily.

So…

Many of us Phoenix creators contributed to a one off Phoenix comic dedicated to Ben. Masterfully organised by story-telling genius Dave Shelton (Thanks Dave! xxxx <- real kisses), some people came up with lovely new full page images tearfully waving goodbye to our departing Captain, others drew jolly little comicstrips. It was an amazing effort, especially considering how busy people were and truly showed the real love we all have for Ben. Sarah McIntyre wrote more eloquently at length about the whole shebang here.

I did a comicstrip about one of my jolly characters from Gary’s Garden, Larry Ladybird, Lord of the Jungle…and um.. it was a little bit rude. Not massively offensive, but maybe not something you want to show to your 6 year old Phoenix fan.

So look away now if you are slightly offended by little winkies…

  1. Brilliant! Both willy and winky were used, that’s all that we need.

  2. Thank you, sir! If only I could’ve fitted in ‘undercrackers’ too, I would have died happy.
