Ken Reid should have received a knighthood or something. If he'd chosen a more 'respectable' medium that would probably have been the case.

Hi Peter, my name is John from Australia, and I only discovered your blogspot recently and I am enjoying your posts, and of course, your comic collections. As a comic collector for over 40years, I am appreciating so much more in British comics through web blogs such as yours. Keep up the great work and passion. The World-Wide Weirdies has been great to see as I was unaware of this wonderful and creative work of Ken Reid.

Thats the idea of the blog...to show a new generation or other countries our British comic talent...
Also you get to see my new cartoons:)

Thanks John your comments have made my day!

I am a massive fan of Ken Reid now! Funnily enough his work really used to disturb me as a kid (in a good way mind you) but now I am able to really appreciate it!

Loving these!


John M. Gilheany said...
Astonishing and inimitable as ever although perhaps a nod to Dastardly and Mutley in the top picture!

I seem to remember either a Krazy or Monster Fun annual from the early '80's which featured a fully painted double-page spread by K.R. on pages 2-3 - of a guided tour around London where all the main monuments were given the 'wrld.w.ws.' treatment. I further recall that it may have been reprinted from a summer special.

I wonder what IPC did with all the artwork?

A worse horror than anything depicted by Ken Reid is reputed to have befallen Joe Colquhoun's original art for Charley's War which was used to soak up water from a burst central heating pipe!!!

Would be interesting to find out what happened to the original art for these masterpieces..shame I can't show any more until people send me some scans..thanks John for your two scans..number 2 being one of them..

Heres the poster you were talking about...see it at toonhound Fleetstreet. :)

With Bear Alley books taking off we might see some Ken Reid comic work collected together at last for us to marvel.

Ah yes! I should have that Summer Special somewhere: the creepy bus driver and freaked-out kids were a wonderful contrast and although the windows are half-open they'd clearly prefer to stay put!!!

Peter, that pull out poster where the word-wide weirdies of Ken Reid were used in a realistic setting was too good. Thanks to you, otherwise I wouldn't have know the artworks were used to feature a poster too :)
