From the Beano-
from The Beano 1962...colour centre pages before the Bash Street kids won this place. Great fun seeing small animals so huge...even scarier when a Tiger is made bigger!! Ken is great at the title panel...it mixes in with the story in fun ways.

Good to see all this great artwork. Ken recently died (20/10/08). He loved his work and so did we!
