"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 COMIC, TV 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.
