Patreon and Website Update

Hi All

Over the last few days, we have done a lot of background on the Perry Winkle Comic website, to make it faster and more effective.

Perry Winkle is extremely image heavy and i understand it ran rather slowly for some users. This should now have improved. If you are still having problems, please do let me know, as we are now using a service.

On this note, to help cover the additional costs for the website, i have created a Patreon, if you would be interested in signing up, for as little as $1 (77p), where you can get access to sketches, works in progress etc, earlier then anyone else. Plus a chance to win a monthly original sketch.

Please do check it out and support us.   – Susie Gander Patreon

International Women’s Day

ARTICLE FROM LYMPHOMA ASSOCIATION WEBSITE

On #InternationalWomensDay, we’re celebrating female physician Dorothy Reed, who had a major influence on the classification of classical Hodgkin lymphoma.

Dr Thomas Hodgkin first described Hodgkin lymphoma in 1832. Some years later Dorothy Reed, along with Carl Sternberg, confirmed that the presence of specific cells indicate classical Hodgkin lymphoma. These cells have a characteristic appearance of ‘owl eyes’ and are now known as Reed–Sternberg cells.

Find out more about lymphoma at www.lymphomas.org.uk/about-lymphoma.

We were very kindly invited to join the very funny gents at “The Awesome Podcast” to discuss real life issue in comics.
Dan Butcher, Vince Hunt and Tony Ezmond.

I was super nervous, but the guys put us at ease and we had a good honest chat and laugh about comics, cancer, toilets and more ..

You can listen to the podcast on the link below.
(Please note – this is an 18+ podcast, which does contain swearing and sexual references)

LISTEN HERE – AWESOME COMICS PODCAST – ISSUE 87

Awesome comics Facebook page

Highly recommend listening to the boys other issues. They are very funny, touching and can learn so much about the comic book world from these guys.

“Comics are a powerful medium and in the right hands can truly help people through tough times. The Awesome Pod crew are joined this week by Susie Gander, whose brilliant semi-autobiographical comic Perry Winkle not only helped her as she battled cancer, but is helping others too. She’s also got the same sense of humour as the ACP gang, so there are crazy jokes and laughs flying in all directions! It’s a brilliant conversation that you come to expect from the show, informative, educational and stocked full of ridiculous chuckles. Plus theres an added bonus of two hilarious out takes from Dans dictionary corner. Dont miss it!”

Dan Butcher – Creator of Vanguard
Vince Hunt – Creator of The Red Mask from Mars
Tony Ezmond – Writer and “Down the tubes” & “Place to hang your cap” contributor.
