When my close personal showbiz pal, Pat Cancer creator and star Chris R Wright, unexpectedly entered the Big Brother house earlier this year I decided to keep our Pat Cancer comics going to drum up support and keep the character alive.
As Chris himself usually writes the strip I recruited a series of willing guest writers and we bashed out a few strips on the theme of the show.
Below are all the Pat Cancer Big Brother specials. Three were written by Chris’ chum and Stalled, Freak Out, Small Town Folk & Mug-Bop co-star – Mr Movies himself – “Quirky” Dan Palmer.
Chris’ actual real life big brother, Nick Wright, was coaxed out of hiding to write one and school pal, Beano artist and all round funnyman, Andy Fanton provided the finale.
There’s one mildly offensive one by myself in there too for good measure…
A huge thank you to all the Chris fans on the Chris R Wright To Win Big Brother Facebook page and to both @ChrisRWrightBB and @CHRISTOWINBBUK on Twitter for all the support. Thanks also to all Chris’ fans for all the likes and retweets and finally a great big THANK YOU to all the writers involved – (plus an apology that I didn’t get time to use all the fantastic scripts they sent!)
As well as blogging and drawing the Pat strips, I also knocked up a few campaign posters for CRW, which you can see below – click the posters to see the originals!
With Big Brother over and Chris back in the real World, Pat Cancer will return to ‘normal’ soon, unless he enters the Celebrity Big Brother house of course, but that would never happen…
