PART FOUR OF KEN REID'S THE NERVS...
From SMASH! & POW! #140, cover dated October 5th 1968,
comes KEN REID's The NERVS. In later years, Reid often confused
this strip with GEORGIE'S GERMS (which I don't think he ever actually
drew), resulting in some modern-day comics commentators doing likewise.
(The strips were similar, hence the easy confusion.) I suppose this strip
was ODHAMS' answer to DCT's The NUMSKULLS (drawn origi-
nally by MALCOLM JUDGE), 'though The BEEZER strip never
rose to the visual extravagance so evident in The Nervs.
Anyway, enjoy the pages, and feel free to comment.
