Re: Comic series title is wanted

Is this Thingumajig from Whizzer & Chips? Yessssssssssssss, thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the title, altough it seems like many artists (except John Stokes) have drowned it. Here they are two samples, one by Ron Turner and another one by Bill Lacey. ΩΡΑΙΟΣ (Ron Turner).jpg ΩΡΑΙΟΣ (Bill La...

Comic series title is wanted

This is a sample of a John Stoke's artwork, a funny comic series focused on an alien who likes to eat... papers! In Greece it was reprinted via "Blek" magazine, sarcastically titled as "Ο Ωραίος Εξωγήινος" ("The Handsome Alien"), although he looks ugly :) Does anyone knows the original title and oth...

Keep posting Nick. None of us may be replying, but I am enjoying the results of your detective work.
Thanks a lot! I'm trying to find out, though it's very difficult.

All the best,

Nikos

Re: Unknown Roy of the Rovers artists

Could be an Angelo Todaro piece of artwork, though.

Re: Unknown Roy of the Rovers artists

Re: Unknown Roy of the Rovers artists

Meanwhile, having found this completed 2-paged sample of Tiger Annual 1968 RotR story artwork, it could be a Nicola Del Principe's (1927 - 2002) or Eugenio Antonio Benni's (1939 - 2009) drawing. Still, no data found about a possible co-operation between that Italian comic art studio and British AP/F...

Sorry to be a pain, Nick, but I think your Modesty Blaise example is by Enrique Badia Romero. Here's an example of Neville Colvin from the same series.
Thanks a lot !!! Still I beleive Romero is closer to the RotR sample. :)

Nick, the original (and best) Modesty Blaise artist was Jim Holdaway. https://www.lambiek.net/artists/h/holdaway_jim.htm

Re: Unknown Roy of the Rovers artists

Concerning the other RotR sample, I beleive it's a Patricia 'Pat' Tourret's (1929 - 2018) artwork, or maybe Neville Colvin's (1918 - 1991) one. Colvin is also very well known as the original artist for Peter O'Donell's " Modesty Blaise " comic series (2nd sample). pat.jpg Modesty-Blaise.jpg

Re: Unknown Roy of the Rovers artists

After a lot of effort, I must say, that I've probably recognized the artist of " The Team with the Secret Weapon " RotR story. It's either John Joseph McNamara (1918 - 2001), well known for drawing Francis Durbridge's (1912 - 1998) " Paul Temple " comic series (1st sample), or Ronald Sydney 'Ron' Em...
