Nick Brennan

Cartoonist, Person


Who is Nick Brennan?

Nick Brennan is a British cartoonist who works mainly for D. C. Thomson & Co. Ltd. He started drawing for the company in 1993, drawing a revival of Peter Piper From The Dandy, revived from The Magic Comic, but looking nothing like Watkins' creation, instead sporting an elvis-like hairdo and purple Jumper.

January 1994 saw his next work Blinky, a revamp of the nephew of Colonel Blink from The Beezer who had first appeared in the merged Beezer and Topper in 1990. Brennan changed his appearance considerably, making him look very different to Colonel Blink. However, when the Dandy was revamped in 2007 it appeared the character has been dropped. He has since returned in reprints.

In 1997, Brennan drew a comic strip for a vote for The Beano. this strip was called "Crazy for Daisy", and, along with Tim Traveller by Vic Neill, won the vote, followed by another strip, Pinky's Crackpot Circus, in 2004, and in 2006, a revival of "Brassneck" and "Noah's Ark". These last three are all from The Dandy. He also used to draw Sneaker for The Dandy.

In the 2000s, Nick Brennan occasionally ghosted Nicky Nutjob, and contributed to the Fun Size Dandy/Fun Size Beano comics. In addition, Brennan was also the artist for Billy Whizz in The Beano from Autumn 2009 until 2012.
