Monkey Nuts Breakfast Cereal!

Here’s on for those early risers among you!

Word reaches us from the Blink Twice studio (creators of Monkey Nuts! for the new DFC comic) that Lawrence Etherington (“Lorenzo” to some) will be appearing on BBC Breakfast tomorrow (Wednesday 4 June) drawing a comic strip, live from 7.00 am (ish).

“There will be no preparation,” his brother Robin told downthetubes, “Just him, a pencil, a biro, and a lot of sweat!

“If you wish to giggle at his funny face – and, fingers crossed, get a look at some of our artwork for our new series Monkey Nuts! – turn on, tune in and hopefully be amazed!”

Working in British comics publishing for over 30 years, his credits include editor of titles such as Doctor Who Magazine, Star Trek Magazine and Babylon 5 Magazine. He also edited the comics anthology STRIP Magazine and edited several audio comics for ROK Comics. He has also edited several comic collections, including volumes of “Charley’s War and “Dan Dare”.
