"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.
