Bananaman – Or Miracleman?

Kev F Sutherland is a stand up comedian, comedy show producer, sock puppeteer, comic book writer/artist and educator. When the London UKCACs came to an end, he put on the Bristol Comics Expo which survives to this day. And he arranged and presented the National Comics Awards with Mark Buckingham – the first comics show to invite Jonathan Ross to present.

And he writes and draws in the weekly British kids comic The Beano, which has been running since the nineteen thirties. But he still manages to bring in other comic book influences.

Such as with Bananaman. A comic running since the eighties, with a TV cartoon voiced by The Goodies and new movie being proposed.

And in last week's issue? Miraclebanana.
