PART TWO OF HARRY HAMMERTOE...THE SOCCER SPOOK...
Another great British cartoonist of yesteryear was REG PARLETT,
whose humorous style graced the pages of many a U.K. comic. This strip is
from the cover-dated September 26th 1972 issue of SCORCHER & SCORE.
I wasn't buying the comic at this time (although I'd bought early issues before
the two titles merged into one), so this strip was new to me when I first saw it
in a book I got a year or so back. Reg was a cartoonist who managed to draw
'funny' - even when there was nothing particularly funny to draw. Just look-
ing at panels in which nothing much is happening makes me chortle.
Know what? That's a gift, and Reg Parlett had it in spades.
