Re: Need help identifying a Reg Smythe daily strip feature

The copyright BULLS could suggest it was from John Bull magazine which was still going up to the early sixties. I've asked my mate Steve to check as he collects John Bull magazine and may also have Reg Smythe's biography. Sorry. I should have mentioned that Bulls are a Swedish print syndicate who, ...

Need help identifying a Reg Smythe daily strip feature

A friend of mine has found a daily strip in Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet by Reg Smythe . The strip is presented in the article below as starring Andy Capp's son. The Swedish name of the strip is "Lill-Viktor och Lotta", (translated "Lil' Viktor and Lotta" – Andy Capp's Swedish name is "Tuffe-Viktor...

Re: Anyone recognize the artist behind this signature?

Four more years have passed and I still have no clue who this artist is.

Anyone?

(I know I'm three month early, but it's different times so I thought I might as well jump the gun on this one. :) )

Re: Need help identifying a comic

Long time no see. I stumbled on another daily that supposedly is British. "Pappas pojke", translation Dad's boy, found in a Swedish news paper in 1946 to 1947. Here are some examples: https://sir-l.se/100procentserier/bilder/s/known/UK/large/dads_boy_19460417.jpg https://sir-l.se/100procentserier/bi...

Re: Unknown Artist for British Girls'Comics

It takes a lot to stump David Roach AND Jenni Scott but this prolific artist of British girls' comics for DC Thomson and IPC has them both baffled. I wonder if anybody here can come up with a name? (Terry Patrick and Neville Wilson have been suggested, but in either case it would involve a surprisi...

Re: Anyone recognize the artist behind this signature?

Ok, so I'll try this one again (another four years later).

Re: Need help identifying a comic

Well, here I go again: The swedish comics book Fantomen ran three different versions of "Robin Hood". One of those was copyright IPC. My questions are: Who's behind the comic? Where was it published? The picture is too big to post it here, so here's the url: http://seriewikin.serieframjandet.se/imag...

Re: Need help identifying a comic

I am right that the comic below is "Devil's Spur", and not "The Frozen Man"? Story: Mike Shannon, ex British agent, gets roped in to "babysit" a scientist, Dr. Alec Shepherd, who's going to climb Djävulstoppen (rough transl. the Devil's Peak, or Devil's Spur if you may) at the Himalayas. What issues...

Re: Need help identifying a comic

I'm back! This time with a question about concerning one of my favourite creators, Denis McLoughlin. The comic "Devil's Spur", that ran in Bullet , is this a one-shot or has the hero Mike Shannon appeared in other ones? (I'm guessing it's a one-shot, as this seems to be the norm when it comes to McL...
