Awesome Ken Reid artwork! The guy was a one off...
I love Ken Reid's work - so great to see this! :)
Yup, and he slicked up one of my drawings back in 1973 on the back page of an issue of Shiver & Shake. There's a post about it somewhere on this blog. If I remember correctly, it's titled "Rich Beyond the Dreams of Avarice..."
Ken Reid, a wonderful artist and a true eccentric. Apparently his favourite treat was a Walnut Whip with a half of black and tan (beer and stout).
Interestingly, nobody's ever succesfully tried to imitate Ken Reid's style - as far as I know that is. He seems to have been a one-off.
In response to my own comment above, other artists have ghosted Ken's style from time to time, but the results were always obvious and inferior. I believe Ken H. Harrison drew some Jonah strips a few years ago, and he's the only artist thus far to do such a good job that kids would've been hard-pressed to tell the difference
