Jack Glass's work in The Dandy
1964 Dandy Annual The Bobcat Boy
Reprinted in 1974 Dandy
From 1968 Dandy
set in the 30's
Jack Glass was in the first Beano comic so a very long career..
also read that his detailled etching made it impossible/difficult to colour..
from The Beano coffee book..
Though The Beezer had his drawing The Black Sapper printed in a few colours..which I'll show in another post..
Its great his work was used..its just very interesting to look at...the figures do run in a unusual way...looking stiff..But that only adds to the charm of his work..a unique style.
See the Stinging Swarm and The Crimson Ball also from The Dandy by Jack Glass at Lews blog..
