Today sees the triumphant arrival of Action Beaver to the world, at least in this incarnation (Bear readers may remember his random appearances some years ago). He joins the increasing number of woodland animals scrapping in Bunny Vs Monkey, my weekly strip in the Phoenix Comic. Action Beaver raises the ridiculous meter through the roof, as he crashes, bangs and squarks his way in and out of adventure on the hunt for an adrenaline rush.
Also in this week’s issue, I did a special double page Bunny Vs Monkey puzzle spread. It was an absolute blast to do, hiding each BVM animal around the woods and building puzzles and a story around them all. And of course there’s this week’s BVM strip itself!
NOT TO MENTION the exceptional roster of artists, writers and storytellers involved with the Phoenix as a whole, YOU SHOULD BE GETTING IT! It’s available on subscription here, or from Waitrose and some comic stores (I know Gosh in london is a strong supporter, anymore stores anyone know of?)
