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: British comics reprinted in Europe

I think the second page is American. The art style reminds me of the Dan Barry years of Flash Gordon (the fifties, mostly) while the heroic character, who seems to be called Dzoni (Yugoslavian for Johnny) looks like Frank Frazetta drew him.

Michael Portillo meets The Beano

In the 8th January 2020 episode (Season 11, Episode 3) of Great British Railway Journeys, Michael Portillo visited Beano Studios in Dundee. About five minutes worth right at the end of the episode.

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.

Re: Susy - French Comic

Captain Hornet, Nick Jolly, The Spider (under the name Blackman) and Steel Claw (Main D'Acier) all had their own French comics. I think the right question is what didn't turn up in French, rather than what did.

Re: Comics on TV

On Youtube, there's a 1949 British film called Stop Press Girl..
There are two newspapers in it, the Morning Sun and the Evening Comet.
Also in 1949, Associated Press took over the comics Comet and Sun.
This is probably a coincidence, but it's quite a big coincidence
