Yesterday's mention of Emilio Frejo's artwork on The Avengers in Diana reminded me that a second artist had also been involved in the strip: Juan González Alacreu—erroneously credited in Crikey! as Alacrejo. González is a fabulous artist who worked on the war libraries as well as various weekly papers for boys and girls. Prior to working on The Avengers, González had worked on another famous TV series, The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
This is another strip that desperately needs to be reprinted. Here's the opening episode to give you a taste.
I should note that Juan González Alacreu is not to be confuused with Jose 'Pepe' González or a third Spanish artist called González who also drew strips in the UK.
