Since my previous posts (you can read the 2018 one here, the 2019 one here) I've collected a few more issues via ebay, retro shops 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 (and sneaking into the 80s).

If you enjoyed this, I'd highly recommend Great News For All Readers and A Resource On Jinty, two excellent comic blogs
