Hello. Jamie here, breaking character for a second to say that this is the final (at least for now) Bames Jond on Saturday strip, owing to a combination of drops in readers and submissions and the fact that colouring these strips is becoming rather tedious, especially with the amount of work I have to get through staring me in the fact throughout. Fear not, the Monday-Wednesday-Friday strips will continue at least until Christmas, but at some point the original source material will run out (and they're not all ripe for comedy, I can assure you) and Bames Jond will have to adapt or die! Hopefully, I'll think of a way that it can adapt. More on that in the days to come.
For now, thanks to everyone who has sent a script to the weekly contest for the last few months! It's been ace to read and have a good guffaw (honestly, hardly a bad one in the whole lot) and it's nice to know that, for a few people at least, the idea was fun enough for them to spend time on it. Very cool.
So, without further ado, the winner of the final Saturday strip contest is... Dave Warley! Congrats! Thanks to Pete and Aoife for their scripts, which I also loved... but bagpipes was the clincher.
Bames Jond will return in 'Episode 47'.
