What was fun was some of the ghost artists who drew when the artist is on holiday or unwell........who drew Harry and his hippo? its not Ken H Harrison the normal artist...

With Commando listing artists and The Beano lets hope Classics will as well.or at least mention artists in the welcome page.....
