We're excited to introduce our first team of contributors to the Newcastle Science Comic, Dave Windett and John Gatehouse.
He has drawn comics featuring numerous licensed characters, including Inspector Gadget, Eek the Cat, Ace Ventura, Daffy Duck and Korky the Cat .
For the Scandinavian market he has illustrated educational books, business manuals and comics.
He has also designed original characters for a variety of publications and provided illustrations for everything from magazines and websites to mobile phones, games, and children's shoes.
Samples of his work can be seen at - http://www.davewindett.com/ and on his blog at - http://www.davewindett.com/blog/
John Gatehouse has written over 100 books and annuals, over 300 television shows and thousands of comic strips and short stories for children.
He has produced stories for legendary characters such as Inspector Gadget, Pokemon, Scooby Doo, Garfield, Dracula, Spider-Man, Ace Ventura Pet Detective, The Hurricanes, Digimon, Rugrats, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and hundreds of other Intellecutal Properties.
John and Dave are currently working together on two projects.
Monster Hunt, a series of Children's books for Penguin (USA) the first of which should be available this Autumn.
The Kaci Bell Mysteries, a newspaper style adventure strip which he and John plan to publish as both a daily web-comic and printed collection once the story is finished. At the time of writing over 100 episodes have already been drawn.
A collection of the Lazarus Lemming strips (that they created for the weekly DFC comic) is due to be "published" on the digital comics platform Comixology and their kid's book, Trick or Treat is still available from Amazon.
Check out these fantastic roughs they did for us. The final version is looking great but you'll have to wait for the comic to see it all.
