I usually write my own material but Beano editor John Anderson wrote the one for this week's Pup Parade as he wanted it to relate to the free gift of a Top Trumps card featuring the pups. I've always liked strips that tied in with the free gift so it was good fun to draw. It's right up the front of the comic on page 2 too, which is nice.
This week's issue also has another Ivy the Terrible strip written and drawn by me. I'm really enjoying being back on the Beano again!
