Cartoonists meet their creations

The November-December 1951 issue of Lilliput magazine carried a brief piece entitled "Joint Consultation; or, the Personnel problems of the Cartoon Industry" in which some of Britain's most famous cartoonists met with their creations. I've seen the Jack Monk image before, without knowing where it had originally appeared. Of the four images it's the best staged, featuring Zola from Monk's "Buck Ryan" strip in the Daily Mirror. That said, the meeting of Giles and some of the younger members of the 'Giles family' will bring a smile to your face. Something to get you off to a cheery start this Monday morning.
