CHRISTMAS IS A COMIN'...
Single frame from WINKER WATSON - The DANDY Annual 2004
Received a Christmas card from comics legend TERRY BAVE and his wife SHIELA this morning. It's great to be so honoured by someone whose work I was reading and enjoying as a kid, from the days of WHAM!, SMASH!, WHIZZER & CHIPS, COR!!, SHIVER & SHAKE, MONSTER FUN, and many more comic publications. It was a thrill when I got to letter some of Terry's pages back in my freelancing days - and it's still a thrill when I think about it today. Merry Christmas and a Happy new Year (when it comes) to two sterling stalwarts of some of Britain's finest comic periodicals.
