When I first put up this post, the images below were a little
blurred.  I've now been supplied with bigger and better scans
and have therefore decided to re-post the whole thing.  I've cut
and pasted any original comments to save folk having to sub-
mit them again.  Aren't I considerate?


Well, this one's a bit later than planned because of all the
comments I've had to respond to in a previous post, but here
we are at last.  Vince (from SIV & VINCE's Blog) used to live
next door to artist MIKE LACEY, who sent the above drawing
to him a few years later.  What a belter, eh?  I'm going to find
out where he lives and go 'round and steal it.  (Hee hee!)

Below are six pages that Mike was given to familiarise him-
self with the look of the strips while filling-in for their regular
artists when they were ill or on holiday.  He kindly sent them to
 Vince also.  The pages were too a bit big for Vince's scanner, so
he photographed them by the light from a window, hence the
slight slant to them.  Thanks for Vince & Siv for letting
me show them on my blog.  Enjoy!

Always loved Mike Lacey's art, especially the covers he did for Fleetway annuals.

Top-notch stuff, sure enough.

I'm glad you posted it, Kid. I tried googling it from S&V's comment, but I just kept coming up with the Marvel "It, the Living Colossus".

You've lost me, JP. Remind me, what comment was that? (I'm tired.)

On the ”Is a bell...." post, S&V mention "It! The Living Colossus" and I thought the artwork they were referring to was their parody of it.

Kid said...

Ah, right. I thought you meant you were being directed to a link from a comment to ITLC.
