War strip query. Can anyone help?

This sounds like a strip from the Hotspur, whose name off the top of my head I can't remember, that was drawn by Bill Holroyd. If it is by the 1970's it was certainly a reprint. I'll get back to you on this one.

Roy Of The Rovers Returns!!!

Any strip that lasts for fifty years has to have something going for it, but that will only be appreciated by those that enjoy the premise of the strip in the first place, in this case football. And even then, and this is true in my case, a polarisation towards the football line-up offered by the pa...

More Bizarre Items from Ebay

Never been a big fan of price guides and as Lew points out the advent of ebay has made the whole idea a basically pointless exercise. What is needed are more guides to the specific contents of annuals/summer specials etc. For instance it would be nice to see a guide of this sort devoted to the annua...

Is Grenademan still out there and if so does he still want some of these strips identified?

Jim Bleach

Do you still want info on Jim Bleach as I did a small article on him many moons ago in an issue of The Comic Journal and I could still search out a few relevant details if of interest?

Re: What a surprise

[/quote] Was not the Mice Of Tobruk originally printed in Bullet? I know that I had read the story arc before but I can't put my finger on the original. What amazes me is not the re-incarnation of characters, but the direct re-print that DCT carried out on several occasions. I can forgive the re-int...

Re: What a surprise

Originals seemed to be Hammer, Bushwhacker, Tad Turner, Young Starhawk, Jasper Sly, Tom Smith's Schooldays (with a style reminiscent of Rian Hughes' Big Dave) and School For Soccer. Recycled were The Mice Of Tobruk (I know I have read it somewhere else and it draws very heavily on Jag's Mouse Patro...

Does anyone know who this artist is?

What is the title of the strip from which the featured example comes from? If I could see a bit more of the artist in questions work maybe a name would spring to mind.

Re: Red Dagger covers

I once owned two of DCT's companion series to Red Dagger, titled Lucky Charm. They were both Ballet School type stories possibly from the 1950's or early 1960's all drawn by the brilliant Paddy Brennan, unfortunately I cannot recall the issue numbers..or the precise titles, though I do remember tha...

Does anyone know who this artist is?

Whoever this artist is, it isn't Alan Philpott although admittedly it maybe someone doing a poor imitation of his style. Philpott's full name was, and possibly still is (he was born in 1916 if memory serves), Frederick Alan just to clear up what the initials F A stood for. He was one of my all time ...

Dudley Watkins Centenary

This month sees the 100th anniversary of Dudley Watkins birth and I thought it appropriate to open up this strand in order to discuss all things DDW. And let me nail my colours to the mast from the off 'Is Dudley Watkins the greatest comic artist that Britain has ever produced?' 'Of course he is!'
