KEN REID'S QUEEN OF THE SEAS - PART FIVE...
It's been a while since we looked at any KEN REID art, so here's
an episode of QUEEN Of The SEAS from SMASH! #5, cover-dated
March 5th 1966. Reid's art was a delight when he was at the height of his
powers, and he was certainly firing on all cylinders when he drew this strip.
Sadly, towards the end of his career, while he was still capable of rendering
the fine detail for which he was famous, the 'life' somehow seemed to have
gone out of his drawings, leaving his pages somewhat stilted. However,
by then he'd done more than enough to ensure his place in the top
tier of British cartooning greats. All hail the mighty Ken Reid!
