Comic Cuts - 4 November 2011
If I remember correctly, I've not really touched on World of Wonder here on Bear Alley, so, once I've got the Doughty book a little more advanced, I'll be firing up the scanner and sharing some finds from the paper with you. I don't have a full run, and some of the copies I have are a bit tatty, but I can promise you some nice eye candy — like our column header — from the likes of Ron Embleton, Gerry Embleton, Angus McBride (lots of McBride!), Don Lawrence and many others.
Random scannage: I recently wrote up some additional information on cover artist Bruce Windo, having finally made some headway with discovering who he was. You can see the results over on the Illustration Art Gallery blog. As a treat, I've put together the following little gallery with some of the works mentioned, starting with an advertising poster, a Pan Book signed 'Bruce' from 1947 and two later Pan Books signed in full from around 1956.
And don't forget, if you're celebrating this weekend...
