Etherington Brothers join The Dandy – with dragons

Here’s the first official artwork from the Etherington Brothers brand new series, YORE!, which will be making its early 2011 debut very, very soon in The Dandy.

This is just the latest of several strips the Etheringtons, creators of Malcolm Magic, Tusk, MOON and Baggage have brought to British comics fans, which include Monkey Nuts, recently released as a collection by Random House, and the web comic Lore of the Things.

“We don’t want to give too much away (hence the completely non-explanatory pic choice!),” say the boys, “but we can reveal that there will be action, adventure, laughs, lots of complaining about stuff, gratuitous cartoon violence by the bone-filled bucketload, er, and a pig.”

So remember folks, when you’re sitting there at home on Christmas Eve feeling jaded because there’s nothing on the TV but a rerun of Dr No or Jamie Oliver cooking something … just remember … Santa really does exist … and he’ll be bringing you a special gift every single week of the year in technicolour quest-o-vision!
