Operation McTavish (aka The Fandabadozee Voyage) Page 1

This idea WAS NOT nicked from The Mighty Boosh...it was nicked from the 60s flick The Fantastic Voyage!

Just to clear that up....though now I may sound over defensive!

Hope I don't get loads of Scottish hate mail about this! I have a very soft spot for British regional humour.

The Jack Stagg Files

Another one from The Old Bean issue 1, which has sold out in Norwich! Yep, all three copies have sold out! HUZZAH!

Note the celebrity cameo, the first of its kind in The Old Bean!

Some more stuff from Old Bean issue 1...

Has anyone else realised that David Bowie has infiltrated the Government? Either that or Health Secretary Alan Johnson has infiltrated the world of pop.

Fair play to AJ though, he did actually release a single as a young chap, which makes him officially more rock n roll that Tony Blair.

As part of my world domination plan, I've been teaching myself to use photoshop...here's a poster I put together for a colleague's play.

Enjoy the poster and go and see the play!!!

Was wondering...a lot of people seem to like Biased Auntie. Does this mean the biased auntie is a common phenomena? Could be. Well, if you're reading this and have any stories of extreme biasedness from an auntie, please feel free to drop me a comment describing the event in question.

Hi all! This is to let you know that this rather splendiferous publication has just hit the shops!

Well, OK, there are currently 3 copies in Gosh! Comics, which is opposite the British Museum, plus I hope to have more in Orbital comics (Charing X Road) and the Cartoon Museum (Little Russell Street) by wednesday next week.

Hmm...that info may actually be fairly useless, as if you're on this site, it means you've prob already got it, so I'd better come up with a hilarious witticism or summat. Right, er...

Oh yeah, did you know that former Misteeq singer and current telly presenter Alesha Dixon has 90s pop combo Alesha's Attic imprisoned in a Dixon's box in her attic? You heard it here first...

...I'll get me coat. Anyways, if you have purchased the said publication, drop us a line and let me know what you think (be constructive). Oh, and may I here point out that Operation McTavish is based on the 60s film The Fantastic Voyage, not that episode of The Mighty Boosh (the strip was almost called The Fandabadozee Voyage, which is prob a better title. DAMN!).
