Who drew this Bumpkin Billionaires? Answer Mervyn Johnston
Whizzer and Chips Holiday Special 1990.
Mike Lacey and Jim Hanson normally drew the Bumpkin Billionaires..who have a good normal rounded fun style..so it is stranjge seeing the Bumpkins in this wacky style..
I'll be touching on artists who drew characters that they didn't normally draw..as they can be interesting to see and its fun trying to work out the artist and what weird styles they used!!
This does look a bit like Spy's work!!!
See BABY BOOMER comic strip here..
UPDATE looking at it again I'm pretty sure that it is drawn by Melvin..
Andy B tells me from comicsuk forum its
Mervyn also drew Buster's Captain Crucial after Tom Paterson left Fleetway.
