"I WISH I WAS A SPACEMAN..."

MIKE NOBLE still illustrates today as well as he ever did.  Age took its toll on the talents of KIRBY and DITKO, but you'd be hard-pushed to find any deterioration between the quality of what he produced week after week in the pages of  TV COMICTV CENTURY 21 and LOOK-IN (and many other titles) back in the '60s, '70s and '80s, and the occasional commissions he undertakes today.

It's said that a picture is worth a thousand words - here's two pictures which prove that little adage a thousand times over.  Above, the cover of the 1966/'67 FIREBALL XL5 Annual;  below, the cover to one of the disc holders in the complete DVD collection of the same programme.

Oh, well - I suppose I'd better dig them out and post them in a future blog. Keep watching.
