The origin of these new comics lay in a number of visits Peter made to the hospital just before and just after the COVID epidemic started.

“I saw for myself the pressure staff were under and the remarkable way they dealt with, the fears they must have been feeling and patients who did not always appreciate their efforts,” he recalls.

“Shortages of beds, protective equipment and staff numbers did not stop them from acting with compassion and skill.

“Our whole family owe the NHS a great debt of gratitude.

“We’ve just hit the £1000 mark for donations on the Splank!, Just Giving page. About half of that came from a digital version of Splank! I published during the pandemic, with the rest coming from early sales of Whapp!, Splank! and Yow!

“If you’d like to help us get the total a bit higher, and get to read what I honestly believe to be a very special set of comics, please buy Whapp!, Splank! and Yow! from Sector 13 Comics. Thank you.”
