A Family Saga in Comic Form

July 3, 2013

Last Saturday The Guardian’s John-Paul Flintoff teamed up with Phoenix artist Adam Murphy to tell the story of the founders of The Phoenix, the Fickling family. They live and work together making comics, which can sometimes be … well … tough.

Full of coffee, comics and chaos, read about the clan behind the weekly story comic. You can see the full article HERE, but we've taken the liberty of introducing the Ficklings to you below.

Scroll down and meet them all!






If you want to get in on the action, The Phoenix have teamed up with The Guardian to offer you the chance to make your own family comic.

Check out the details here

Huge Phoenix salutes go to the brilliant John-Paul Flintoff for all his amazing words, and Adam Murphy for putting down his shovel and usual routine of stalking graveyards in Corpse Talk, to draw such a wonderful comic.

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!
