Too Great A Risk!

Before he began drawing MACH1 for 2000AD, Jesus Redondo had spent over a decade drawing for girls' comics in the UK, mostly for D. C. Thomson in the pages of Diana, Spellbound and others, via the Creaciones agency of Luis Llorente.

Creaciones also picked up other work outside of the regular weekly comics, including work for the Family Planning Information Service, for whom Redondo drew the following 4-page cautionary tale.

Of course, the Holy Grail for collectors of family planning comic strips is a similar pamphlet drawn by Ian Gibson for the same agency. It needs to be preserved for posterity!
