Since my last post on British comics in the 70s (which you can read here
), I've collected a few more issues via ebay and picked up a couple of reprint collections from Rebellion too. Time and again, I'm struck by the high quality of the artwork, both for the strips themselves and the covers and I still think it's a real shame you don't see this kind of thing any more.
So, to once again make up for the lack of hand-drawn colour on comic shelves these days, here's another selection of covers from the 1970s.
|The issue of Action that caused a whole host of problems for the comic, not only for this cover (and the strip it came from) but also because, in the Look Out For Lefty strip, a footballer is injured when a bottle is thrown at his head by the heroes girlfriend. For more details, Lew Stringer wrote an excellent blog on the issue, which you can read here |
If you enjoyed this, I'd highly recommend Great News For All Readers
and A Resource On Jinty
, two excellent comic blogs
Thanks to Lew Stringer
(Action and Warlord covers)
