Steve Bright takes over drawing a Dandy comic library

Jimmy Glen

Peter Davidson

Steve Brights Desperate Dan

Heres an unusual comic library.
A comic artist starts drawing the first couple of pages... then for some reason stops..then the new artist finishes it off. Steve Bright is the artist who did the honour. Though they don't blend together at all its fun to read and see.

Peter, thanks for doing that - it hasn't improved any with age! the initial pages were drawn by Peter Davidson ('The Broons' and 'Oor Wullie' artist), and I had forgotten that the cover was done by DCT staff artist, Jimmy Glen. I can't recall why Peter couldn't complete the library, nor indeed why Jimmy did the cover at a time when I was doing many of the covers for the other libraries (perhaps Ian had decided I'd made enough of a pig's ear of the inside pages). So it's a bit of an oddity all round. -Steve Bright
