Sparky adverts and Ma Kelly's Telly by Les Barton
I love this strip...I just love it when it break the forth wall in comics...more the better I say...a bit like a Tex Avery cartoon.
A lot of people say that a good writer can rescue a poor artist. I don't agree an artist can still ruin it. Comics are very visual and need to be very good. This strip is good in both ways. I would love to see this strip back in The Beano...Dandy...the numbskulls has got a bit tired...(little people inside a boys head) bring this back for a change!
Yet again why did Les Barton stop drawing for comics after only a few short years...retirement...ill health...new job...the company didn't like his style...something else??? Anyone know!?
