The Beano gets Nuked!

This week’s Beano features a surprise guest star smashing through the pages – Nuke Noodle, Alex Matthews’ time travelling wrestler from The Dandy!

Nuke appears in my puzzle page Wrestlers Vs Zombies, alongside my versions of classic Beano oddity Pansy Potter: The Strongman’s Daughter and Jamie Smart’s ace (but criminally short-lived) Mexican Wrestling star El Poco Loco! A real mixed bag of characters new and old!

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Nuke Noodle, he was always the highlight of The Dandy each week and I regularly re-read the gloriously mad strips. When I pitched the puzzle I had planned to sneak him in the background, but had so much fun drawing him that he became the star!

Here’s the first ever Nuke Strip, from Alex’s ace Blog.

  1. I wish that Nuke Noodle bursting through the Beano cover was an actual issue cover. That would be the best thing ever!
