Re: Art spotters this way!

It looks like Neville Wilson to me. That is such lovely artwork. I love the anthology format of older British comics. Um, I saw my blog, British Comic Art mentioned earlier in this thread. I haven't died or anything and have been meaning to get new stuff on there but have been pretty busy with work...

Re: R.I.P. Carmine Infantino

I know his B&W style was different again, and I know I've come across it but can't think of for the life of me where. Maybe Warren? Star-Lord? As reprinted in Star Wars Weekly? http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-w7ZPSgJ71q8/TlWFOkUNSUI/AAAAAAAAi6E/8mcBLDN2Nh8/s1600/preview1524.jpg Yes, definitely that, but ...

R.I.P. Carmine Infantino

Another one bites the dust: http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=44738 His artwork was an aquired taste, at least for me. As I didn't read DCs growing up, I first became aware of him via Spiderwoman, where his style suited the rather off-beat character. I know his B&W style was differe...

Charles Checkley

Can anyone provide me with Charles Checkley's date-of-death? I know he died in 1971, but can't find any reference to day/month. Even DCT were unable to help.

Re: Football season 2011/12

I agree with Matrix. It does feel as if Tottenham are going places. Are the F.A. hellbent on an English manager? In terms of c.v.'s there is not exactly a long list, honours-wise: Redknap has a solitary F.A. cup to his name (as manager), though that's arguably more than Steve McClaren's single Leagu...

Re: Space-Kid Kelly

To me, some of the poses look like Mike White. It's definately not Bolland, Gibbons or Bolton. Having looked at the art in some of his obits, and from reading through this, I think you might be right after all: http://illustrationartgallery.blogspot.com/2011/06/mike-white.html Is it possible that t...

Re: Space-Kid Kelly

Hmmm. Not sure about Mike White (though I've only got the 2000AD pages on your site to go on). I'm sorry I put the Space-Kid Kelly pieces in their own thread as I don't think anyone's heard of it and therefore aren't looking. The style of the art suggest it's either one of the new generation of Brit...

Re: Art spotters this way!

I am VERY sure when I see Terry Patrick. It is almost as if he saw Ron Smith's stuff and decided to send it up when he drew for comedic effect. As to Skyboy, I am now 99% certain that it is another Neville Wilson strip due to the face of the character jumping over the bull in frame one. I've come a...

Re: Space-Kid Kelly

As this seems to have stumped everybody I thought I'd add couple of pages from a separate strip featuring some vaguely science-fictional schoolboy hi-jinks. Different artist this time, though. Possibly Donnison? Maybe Campion?

Any thoughts?

Re: Art spotters this way!

Here are a couple more scans from various Hotspurs I found interesting. Ring any bells? Again, apologies for the less than stellar quality.

Re: Art spotters this way!

Dreamticket, your two guesses are bang on. Neville Wilson drew the Thief Taker (his style is so easy to recognise when you can see a face that he has drawn) and Bert Vandeput drew The Golden Goals of Johnny Jackson. The Slowest Gun In The West is Terry Patrick and drew most of the modern Black Sapp...

Re: Gene Colan RIP

Nice! A lot of people felt that Colan's pencilled artwork looked far better before it was inked over by other hands. - Phil R. Several of his eighties books were shot from pencils, as I recall. Detectives Inc. (second series?) and Nathaniel Dusk (as has been mentioned). Ragamuffins as well, I think.

Re: Favourite Covers (and story illustrations)

Here's an illustration I came across last night. It's from an early 70s text story in Hotspur and I quite like it. Intriguing enough to make me want to read the story. Not a great scan, though.

Re: Favourite Covers (and story illustrations)

The artist so adept at depicting war themes wasn't Watson,Kennedy or Rawlings but Jeff Bevan a stalwart of the Thomson papers for thity-five years from the late 1950's. His dad Oscar had been a Thomson staff artist before him mostly working on the women's magazines. Glad to have you back as well. B...
