CHRISTMAS IS A'COMING...



As we're getting near Christmas, I thought I'd get us all in the
mood by sharing a nice Yuletide scene.  I've shown this before of
course, but is there anyone who'd ever tire of seeing this evoca-
tive ROBERT NIXON masterpiece again?  Thought not.

Great piece of art to be sure and I was wondering if a festive Frankie, or other character, would make an appearance on your blog prior to the 25th - and here we are! I must admit I'll always prefer Frankie as Ken Reid originally drew him but Robert Nixon's version is growing on me, chiefly due to the examples you've been posting.

It's pages of art like this, PC, which made me re-evaluate Nixon's Frankie work. It's really grown on me in the last few months. Reid's strips are truly mental in content, but Nixon's strips make Frankie more lovable, I think. To people our age, it's Reid's art which defines the character, but Frankie actually had a much higher profile in the '70s.
