These splendid pages should be in the Tate, let's face it!

K.R.'S work speaks for itself and even louder from the original comics alongside different (and often lesser) cartoonists.

Thanks so much for making such a huge amount of essentially lost treasure readilly available.

I'll have a rummage around my old boxes of Fleetway titles for any gaps that it may be possible to plug.

Tara,

John

Thank you so much for putting these up. I used to have a full collection of Whoopee! from #1 to infinity as a child. I foolishly cut the wanted posters off the back as i loved looking at them so much. and then lost them. Without the wanted posters the comics were just not as much fun and I eventually gave them all away to a bring-and-buy sale.
