BUSTER ARTIST PASSES AWAY...
I've just learned from STEVE HOLLAND's blog that
cartoonist ANGEL NADAL QUIRCH passed away on
June 26th. For a detailed account of the man and his work,
years ago featuring some of Nadal's original artwork.
BUSTER had several good artists in his time, but possibly the
best remembered (to those of a certain age) is ANGEL NADAL,
who drew the strip from 1962 to '74. This particular page is from
an issue dated October 29th, but unfortunately I don't know what
year, as it's not noted on the back and I don't have the published
comic in my collection to refer to.
If anyone happens to know the year of publication, or can sup-
ply a scan of the printed strip, feel free to say so in the comments
section. Luckily, when I get around to showing my other Buster
artwork (a two-pager), I'll be able to show you the actual printed
pages. No, don't thank me - it's all part of the 'job'!
UPDATE: Thanks to PHILIP CRAWLEY for
alerting me to where I could find an image of the published
page, which I've 'borrowed' to show here. Be sure to visit
www.bustercomic.co.uk to see more great pictures
and learn all about the history of BUSTER.
