I'm hoping to go to this soon. I'm praying we don't have another lockdown preventing me from going :D

I've finally been able to go tot his Exhibition.
What I found interesting about the Dudley D Watkins Lord Snooty art they have on display is that you can see where when they reprinted it they replaced the old pals with the new ones. Some were just whited out, other times they've pasted new heads over old characters.
There arent any examples of this in your blogpost but you can see it in the Exhibition Comic they sold there.
