Tumblr

Tumblrs are back! Little personal online scrapbooks where you can find all sorts of weird and wonderful images and links.

Maybe they never went away, but I had one about a billion years ago which I used for bookmarking lovely comic stuff I found. It was only a personal thing, so I gave it the crummiest name: Comic Scrapbook. Innovative, eh?

Here’s someĀ  tatty Tezuka book covers, just the sort of thing I loved to Tumblr

Anyway, what with my over-burgeoning comic-related bookmark tab and a rise in brilliant Tumblrs to follow, I’ve dusted Comic Scrapbook down and I’ll be linking again to all sorts of lovely comic-related eyecandy.

Undercrackers!

Hooray! This week sees the release of a new issue of the monthly mag Beanomax, which, as we all know, means another stupid DEREK THE SHEEP story! “Woohoo!” the nation cries.

This month features Derek looking after idiot savant Bernard the Goat whose shed has blown away. Bernard likes to eat underpants, so it’s all about the pants for two whole pages. I even get to use the word “undercrackers” (I love that word).

Here’s an hilarious panel:

Ho ho. And what japes are had!

I did have a scene where Rodney the Bull and Dave Goose were flushing loo paper down the toilet, but there just wasn’t room to fit it all in. The shame.

Here’s Rodney looking all innocent, DVD-extra-stylee:

And here he is in the strip all dressed up in loo paper:

So please rush out and buy the Beanomax, cos it’s brill and I’m in there every issue. Oh yes.
