Re: Bill Ritchie framed print.

In yesterday's Sunday Post they had a two page advert for all things Scottish. One of the items is a framed print showing god creating Scotland. It looks very much like it was drawn by Bill Ritchie. There is a website for the company selling this at http://www.langsyneshop.co.uk. If you go to the s...

Does anyone recognize these strips? (Big Comic Fortnightly)

That's the same Tom Williams, Frazer - thanks for posting that. He had a wonderfully unique style, and always gave more than he was asked. He also drew Peter Pest for Nutty, and I had a lot of self-indulgent fun scripting Steevie Starr for him, where the eponymous hero was set in a different movie/t...

Re: Does anyone recognize these strips? (Big Comic Fortnight

I don't know which issues they originated from but the last two look like the work of Tom Williams. (Definitely not Baxendale or Paterson obviously.) Lew A chance to disagree with Lew doesn't come along very often, so you have to grab it when it does. Do you mean the same Tom Williams that worked e...

Re: how to make a comic

Dennis, don't you worry about grumpy old Raven. He's obviously losing his tail feathers. I think you'll find Dennis is most probably a prankster rather than a genuine poster, Steve, if you check his prolific output! Call me cynical ... Though stranger things have happened. Okay, you're cynical! And...

Peter's Pocket Grandpa was drawn by Ron Spencer if my memory serves me well, Peter.

Drawing comics: help please!

Okay, I will admit that I applied, and my first choice (Edinburgh College of Art) turned me down. I was a little cheesed off to say the least, so I decided not to bother with my second choice (Dundee's Duncan of Jordanstone Art College, from where my daughter graduated in the summer, with honours - ...

Golfing with Dennis

Is there a website showing any of the interior pages, Phil? Or if you have a copy, could you scan a couple of samples and post them please? The cover illustration looks remarkably similar to the cover of a booklet I was commissioned to draw for a joint venture between DCT and the R&A more than a dec...

Re: EBAY HAS A LOT TO ANSWER FOR!

What's all this talk of 'Salt n Shake' with its' neat and tidy flat pack of hermetically sealed NaCl? No I'm talking about what Phil is referring to, a pea-sized pellet of salt in what looked like a piece of twisted carbon-paper. Agh! Life's too short to continue with this as a topic.

John Geering

He also appeared in Coronation Street in his younger years, as I may have mentioned here before, and was a special constable, whose warrant card allowed him to get to Dundee in his XR3 faster than Jackie Stewart in his prime. He must have hated it when I was sent to meet him at Edinburgh airport in ...

I do agree with Lew and that we're not talking about the odd factual inaccuracy about comic issue numbers here, and that it would be good to have a proper explanation...

WATKIN'S FINAL COMIC PAGE................

I'm almost certain it was a Biffo. I was ten when he died, eight years before I began my working life as the junior in The Beano office. One of the first of many stories I was told by the staff was of the time the news of Dudley's death broke, and the Beano Editor arrived at the office in the mornin...
