Here’s another character that popped onto the page this year and was only ever meant to appear once for the joke. Now the Swagman has lines of his own. No doubt he’ll come back again later somewhere.

That makes three characters in this one strip that all turned up unintentionally this year. Not to worry. I’ve grown fond of Jackson and Didj. They’re good fun to branch off from Casper and Cody every now and then.

Any thoughts from you lot out there?
