AGAIN! BEST OF BRITISH - FACEACHE...
KEN REID was among the cream of the crop of British cartoonists,
and, looking at the above strip, all the exquisite detailing for which he
was justly renowned is still evident. However, although this is a lovely
page, I think I see a hint of the beginning of the later decline in Ken's art,
in that the panel compositions are mainly 'side-on', making the charac-
ters appear one-dimensional. The inevitable result, alas, of being
drawn mostly in profile. As I said 'though, still a lovely page.
