Scared stiff

A soldier admits he’s scared stiff

SALE ITEM: FOUR LEFT A soldier is unusually honest about how he feels: scared stiff. I like the way his face is shaded – which seems unusual but gives a sense of retrospection and perhaps even shame. The background swirls with smoke or emotion-laden clouds. This is an image from the ever-popular Commando comics, pocket-sized […]

Auf wiedersehen Englander

Auf wiedersehen Englander!

SALE ITEM – ONE THIRD OFF Auf wiedersehen Englander! A German in Allied uniform tells a British soldier ‘See you later’ (in German) as he shoots him. Great stuff from the Victor comic. Apparently Germans used this ruse a lot at the beginning of the so-called Battle of the Bulge in the Ardennes, the last […]

Korky the Cat gets into a fight

Korky The Cat gets into a fight

KORKY THE CAT GETS INTO A FIGHT – NEW SALE ITEM Korky The Cat gets into a fight and invites a normal cat to box him – it’s a kind of anthropomorphic joke. Korky is accepted by the human characters of the strip as another human – and he fights like a man, with his […]

The Dandy and the Beatle-mice

Korky the Cat and the Beetle-mice NEW SALE ITEM!

NEW SALE ITEM! Dandy favourite Korky the Cat plays with the Fab Four Beetle-mice. Remember, the Beetles were at their hey day in the early 1960s, the date of this front cover, so it represents a fusion of two giants of popular culture. This is a four-colour screenprint, with green created by overlapping blue and […]

Gnasher behind bars

Gnasher behind bars

NEW SALE SCREENPRINT – JUST TWO LEFT Gnasher is behind bars but seems strangely cheerful. Gnasher is, of course, the companion of Dennis the Menace. Dennis, the star of The Beano comic, first appeared in 1951. He has since become a kind of national mascot – what Asterix is to France, or Oor Wullie is […]

Dennis the Menace wants a raygun

Dennis the Menace wants a raygun

NEW SALE ITEM – ONE THIRD OFF Dennis the Menace wants a raygun from his father. And is refused. As if it were a serious request, and was actually in Dad’s gift, along the lines of asking for another catapult. Dennis the Menace, the star of The Beano comic, first appeared in 1951. He has […]

Dennis sells Gnasher for a fiver

Dennis the Menace sells Gnasher for a fiver

NEW SALE ITEM – ONE THIRD OFF Dennis the Menace sells his beloved companion Gnasher for a fiver. No doubt he’s got some scheme to retrieve the hound afterwards. And he seems to have found a gullible American buyer (complete with large checked jacket) to make the purchase. But Gnasher does seem to be very […]

Dennis pulls nine faces

Dennis the Menaces pulls faces

NEW SALE ITEM – ONE THIRD OFF Dennis the Menace pulls nine faces as he goes through his extensive gurning repertoire. Dennis the Menace, the star of The Beano comic, first appeared in 1951. He has since become a kind of national mascot – what Asterix is to France, or Oor Wullie is to Scotland. […]

Asterix, Obelix and Dogmatix on the march

Asterix, Obelix and Dogmatix on the march

I’ve produced two new, tall, thin screenprints of Asterix, Obelix and Dogmatix in silhouette – this time on teal backgrounds. The first one is of Asterix alone. The other is of Obelix and his hound. I love the colour I’m using here – and the fact that most of the screenprints is just plain ink […]
