The Bat and the Banana!


The latest in a long line of increasingly bizarre crossovers from some weird alternative universe where all notions of good taste and sense are thrown to the wind, this sees DC Comics' and DC Thomson's finest united against the Clown Prince of Crime and, uh... well. See for yourself:


Yes, shark-infest custard. I can now die happy.

If you don't know who Bananaman is, here's the title sequence to his 80s TV show, moderately beloved by a generation:


And this is Batman:


The Brave and the Daft

A sneak peek of a VERY silly thing I drew today:

Open All Hours


HEY YOU! If you're interested in buying one of my prints or sketchbooks, but you can't be bothered arseing about with emails and what-have-you... Well, I can't say I blame you. So you might be interested to know I have a BIG CARTEL shop now. And here it is: http://danmcdaid.bigcartel.com/

You'll find this sort of thing waiting for you there:








And I'm going to be adding more prints and probably original artwork there in the months to come, so stay tuned. Hey, does anyone even know what stay tuned means these days? Like the record scratch effect (still ubiquitous in trailers for hack comedies), hasn't it become completely passe? How much "tuning" does one do on a daily basis these days? I'd argue almost none. That said, I bought a new TV recently and was surprised to find that extensive tuning was still necessary to find the channels (and I couldn't find *any* channels as it turned out, because Freeview is a f*cking joke). Hours - or it felt like hours - were spent staring at static, as my useless new telly tried to find BBC Four, ITV3... Christ, I would have settled for QVC. Nothing. When I was a kid, I called the static between channels "trash", and it scared the bejeezus out of me. It still creeps me out a bit, I don't mind admitting.


If there's a hell, this is what it looks like.

Space Jockin'

Sort of influenced by all the Prometheus talk that was in the air a couple of weeks ago, here's how a couple of panels from my current Doctor Who strip worked out.
