Re: What comics did you buy today?

The new Battle Of Britain Special from Rebellion. Rat Pack as nasty as ever, balanced by a short story that left me a bit misty-eyed, and I've still lots to read. In the shops later this week. 100 pages.

Re: British / American Comics in China

The last scan looks like the work of Walt Kelly, but badly traced. He did a lot of comic book work before creating Pogo. This might be from Fairy Tale Parade, which has a Facebook page at https://m.facebook.com/WaltKellysFairyT ... l&mt_nav=0. People there might know.

Re: New Johnny Red comic launches in November

Here's another interview with Keith Burns (not heard it because I'm at work). The text is in French but never mind that, just look at all the original black and white art there, this time with the link: https://www.comicartfactory.com/keith-burns-johnny-red-castles-in-the-sky-air-battles-hurricane-w...

I can see no sign of Toth having drawn war comics for Atlas, so you're safe.
