THE PHANTOM PATROL

To back Jim's info, the artist is definitely Gerry Embleton. I'm currently corresponding with him and while I have the abridged '2000AD' annual reprints to send him, I was trying to obtain some copies of the original strip as Gerry has none.

THE PHANTOM PATROL

SPUD - Theres no mention of it being printed previously in my ODHAMS book so looks like it was all original stuff- It ran from issues 9 - 75,(April 1966- July 1967) containing 7 story arcs . Art was by Jorge Bernet with scripts by Graham Baker. Your right a lot of similarities to Time Tunnel Origina...

THE PHANTOM PATROL

Yes, slip of the keypad, I meant Gerry, of course. While I'm on, anyone know if The Legend Testers from SMASH (that really WAS like the Time Tunnel, but no Lee Merriwether, shame) was a reprint or new?

THE PHANTOM PATROL

Jim - I think your correct on this one - On havign a look at the strips I have again, it looks like Gerry's work to me and not Rons.

THE PHANTOM PATROL

Just to push a point here. I've only ever seen the reprints in the 2000AD annual(s). But I'm pretty sure it was Ron Embleton's brother, Gerry who drew the strip. Can anyone confirm this?

THE PHANTOM PATROL

Yes, it's the same strip, just retitled. Wasn't it originally in SWIFT comic ( a kind of junior EAGLE) in about 1959, another Hulton/Odhams title. I've got at least one example of the corresponding strip in both comics, the only difference is the name and the cheap print of SMASH makes a bit of a me...

THE PHANTOM PATROL

No - 'The Phantom Patrol' was about a WW2 army troop who discover a strange device that turns out to be a time machine. They become lost in time, getting involved in various historic conflicts but also occasionally ending up in the future. I suppose you might describe it 'Stargate SG1' meets 'The Ti...

THE PHANTOM PATROL

Actually it was in SMASH! and ran for about 25 issues from No.1, reprinted from "Phantom Patrol". Now does anyone remember being scared silly by Brian Lewis's "Moon Madness" in SMASH? And I DO mean SILLY!
