Peter Ford

For some years, the only artwork by Peter Ford I had seen was humour strips drawn for TV Action. I knew he had also drawn flying strips in his early career and had also worked for Commando but had no idea, until recently, how good these were. The editors at Commando have recently reprinted three of his stories, including his debut story, Fly Fast, Shoot First!, from which the following sequence is taken.

Those faces look a bit like David Lloyd, don't you think?
