Peter Gray has published a letter from the daughter of Eric Roberts over at his Cartoons and Comics blog. Roberts was a long time contributor to both Amalgamated Press and D. C . Thomson, his style instantly recognisable. One minor error... where Erica mentions Sinbad the Sailor, I believe she must mean "Sinbad Simms", which Roberts drew for Knockout in 1957-58; above you'll see the opening episode and just what a terrific artist Roberts was. Sinbad looks just like Roberts' later creation Winker Watson, who debuted in the Dandy in 1961.
