Andrew Wilson

Back to the Swift Annual...

Andrew J. Wilson contributed to Swift Annuals 1, 4 and 5. He was a regular artist at Fleetway in the 1960s and 1970s, notably drawing the long-running strip 'The Happy Days' in Princess (1960-67) and Princess Tina (1967-73). The exploits of the Day family ran for over 600 episodes and were reprinted in Girl (1964) and Pixie (1973) and also inspired a Sue Day Annual. Other Wilson strips include 'Lassie Come Home' (Princess Tina, 1968-69).

Following the demise of 'The Happy Days', Wilson worked on a number of strips in Buster, taking over 'The Runaways' from Joe Colquhoun and drawing 'The Byrds of Paradise Isle' (1978-80) and 'Johnny's Journey' (1980).

What happened to him after that I don't know.
