No sooner has one of my Beano mini-strips concluded its run, then another begins! While Jurassic Play Park became extinct last week, this week sees the start of my new silly series – Pant-Man!
It is, as you may have guessed, based on the Marvel Comics character (and soon-to-be-star of the not-so big screen) Ant-Man. Do you see what I did there? Ant? Pant? Ah, suit yourselves.
The series follows the exploits of Pant-Man, a superhero cursed with possibly the most useless of all super-powers – he can turn himself into a pair of pants.
Over the next six weeks, our pantastic new hero encounters all sorts of obstacles in his quest to become a proper hero. Will he overcome adversity, or will he hit the SKIDS? Is he here for the long haul, or will his tenure be BRIEF? If those terrible puns haven’t put you off, then pick up The Beano every week to find out!
I HOPE IT’S NOT A PANTICLIMAX!
