Every issue of The Phoenix Comic finishes with a little slice of the extraordinary from Elsewhere…

Editor in Chief of The Phoenix, Tabs really runs the show. Nothing distracts her from her work (except maybe a really snarly ball of wool…) She finds all the brilliant strips, keeps a close eye on the rest of the team and reads all your letters (see The Fanfare page in every issue to see if she’s chosen yours for print!) When Tabs isn’t hunting down a great new story-strip, she likes nothing better than to spend an afternoon fishing.

Chops is a complicated Pig, that no one really understands – except for his friends. He’s a little bit accident-prone and easily distracted. But he really loves comics! Chops is second in command to Miss Inkspot, and it’s his duty to make sure you guys know what's what inside the comic. He’s also usually first in the know when there’s a great competition to enter, so keep your eye on him!

bruno_smallBruno is the head of The Phoenix Comic news-hounds. He’s in charge of sniffing out all the important stories from the world of The Phoenix and beyond. He rarely ever barks and almost never bites. In fact, Bruno is probably the friendliest Bulldog you could hope to meet. But he's not afraid to chase down a scoop (that Yapski needs keeping in line!) in his role as top- dog for The Big News. When he’s not working, Bruno loves curling up by the fireside and chomping on a good bone.

SCOOP_PAGE_TURNScoop chases stories faster than some dogs (and pigs!) chase their tails. When Bruno sends Scoop out on a lead, you can be sure he’ll track down the facts and bring them to The Big News before you can say Fetch! Scoop’s also a fearless interviewer – look out for his ‘Yapski Meets’ exclusives, where he’ll be talking to some of The Phoenix’s top stars. Away from his work, Scoop loves to … research his next story!

Iris is head photographer for The Big News and responsible for snapping all the hot-shots in every issue of The Phoenix. Ever ready with her camera, she’s caught some great and surprising moments on film already – including a surprise visitor to our HQ (check it out in Issue Zero)! Iris speaks twelve languages and likes rock-climbing and karate.

Ellie partners up with Scoop to bring you the latest updates in The Little News. She’s got one of the best noses in the business. Which she uses to catch a whiff of the most recent developments in all our top stories. As the newest member of the news hounds Ellie sometimes gets stuck making the tea. But she's never afraid to get stuck in when her duty as a reporter could get dangerous. Brave to the bone and full of energy Ellie takes it easy on her days off by either sewing or skydiving.

Joe Bananas heads up this rough and tumble group of rag-tag fixers and bodgers. No job too big, no job too small, The Crew are the backstage wonders that keep The Phoenix in good working order. Whether it's a new shipment of speech bubbles to be inventoried or a fresh batch of panels to install, we can be sure the comic is in good hands when The Crew's about!
