Some of you might be interested in this new book from Fantagraphics on the work of L.B. Cole. His work appeared on the covers and interiors of a number of British comics, reprinting American material. This link will take you to the Fantagraphics page where you can have a read at a 19 page sample:-

My complimentary contributors copy arrived yesterday and it is an excellent book with Cole's background and career covered in detail. But the illustrations on the high quality stock are simply superb , showcasing the various genres he covered. Cole drew very few comic strips and is best remembered for the variety, quality and sheer class of his covers.

I have only just seen this about L.B.Cole. Thanks for the link Paw those covers of his are fantastic. Especially the 'Blue Bolt' covers, I did not know he did those. I have a few comics from the golden era, and coincidently have a 'Blue Bolt' that I purchased a few weeks ago but it is coverless!! I might post about that later.
