Appearing between 2004 and 2011, Derek The Sheep is the Beano‘s first and only creator-owned strip.
In 2008, Bloomsbury published the first 13 Beano strips in a handsome book. It was also published in France by L’Edition de L’an 2, under the moniker Norbert Le Mouton. Derek’s book was chosen as Booktrust’s 2009 Booked Up Picture Book Option and listed as 1001 Comics You Must Read Before You Die.
