Re: British Comic Mergers - Good or Bad?

I started reading Valiant in 1969 which, in hindsight, was probably just when it was starting to decline a bit. I think the mergers with Smash! and TV21 weakened it further but I didn't mind them too much at the time. I hated the merger with Lion and it was never the same for me after that. Looking ...

Re: Authorship in girls and boys comics

It was written and drawn by Byrne and he was paid his full page rate as an artist for that sequence.

Re: British comics in Greek magazines

You're right Phil, it's "The Man Called 39" which began in the first combined issue of Valiant and Knockout. Those particular pages are from the issue dated 16th march 1963.

Re: Typhoon Tracy artist

Thanks to both of you. I thought it looked like Campion but I wasn't sure.

And thanks for the kind words Phil.

Typhoon Tracy artist

I'm featuring a Typhoon Tracy story from Hurricane on my Art of Diving blog. I always try to name the artists where possible so can anyone tell me who drew the strip in issues 55 - 61 (13th March - 24th April 1965)? Any help will be much appreciated.

Cheers,

Robbie

Re: Help ... Buster fans ..

I'd like to know who the artist is too. I may be going crazy but something about the faces of the two defenders says Barry Smith to me.

Re: Steve Dillon has died

He must have been the first artist anywhere to draw a new Ant-Man story after he changed his name to Giant Man in Tales to Astonish. That would have been Herb Trimpe in issue 4 of Marvel Feature from 1972. It was the first of a short series appearing in issues 4 - 10 (although issue 8 was mostly re...

Re: British comics in Greek magazines

I think Bradbury did a lot of the Jet covers, including those featuring Bala, perhaps that's it.

Re: British comics in Greek magazines

Eric Bradbury was busy drawing Von Hoffman's Invasion for Jet. Bala the Briton looks like Felix Carrion's work to me.

The Dwarf first appeared in issue two of Jet (well, apart from a single picture in issue one).

Re: Humour or Adventure - Do you have a preference?

By the time 2000AD came along the only humour comics I was reading were Asterix and Andy Capp I only remember Andy Capp as a newspaper strip. If there was an Andy Capp comic it certainly passed me by. Okay, I'm using comics in a broader sense to include the twice-yearly Andy Capp collections. It's ...

Re: Humour or Adventure - Do you have a preference?

I used to get Whizzer and Chips every week and enjoyed my sister's Beanos but generally favoured adventure titles more: TV21, Valiant, Countdown, the Marvel UK titles and whatever US editions I could get my hands on. By the time 2000AD came along the only humour comics I was reading were Asterix and...

Re: British comics in Greek magazines

March of the Mighty Ones. It appeared in Monster Fun from issue one (June 1975). The creatures were created for a film shoot.
