Tartan Bucket Prize Winning Strip In The New Beano

About this time last year the Dundee University Humanities Department, in conjunction with DC Thomson, launched the Tartan Bucket Prize competition to create, write and illustrate a new Beano and Dandy style children's humour comic strip.

At the conclusion of the Dundee Comics Day at Dundee University in October last year, Steve English was announced as the winner of the Tartan Bucket Prize. In addition to a cheque for £1000 and, quite literally, a tartan covered bucket full of DC Thomson goodies, its was also announced there that his strip, Belle's Magic Mobile, was to be published in The Beano.

Three months on and Belle's Magic Mobile is in the current issue of The Beano, number 3621, which has a cover price of £1.50.

There are more details about Steve English's work at his Football Earth website.
