Ellis Evans

Ellis W. Evans is another of the authors associated with the war libraries published by Fleetway Publications who has proved elusive. Other than that he lived at 59 Gordon Mansions, Torrington Place, London W.C.1 in around 1961-63, I've not found anything about him. He had a brief career, mostly writing for War Picture Library, notably one of the stories illustrated by Hugo Pratt. I should add that writers credits are far from complete for many comics and picture libraries so this list is likely to be very incomplete.
