Happy Days comic Fireworks fun and Christmas cover by legend Roy Wilson..

 A great book by Denis Grifford 100 years of comics...lots of great comic covers from 1870-1970. Bought in Oxfam this week for £3.99..;0)
I love Roy Wilson's work and these gems are the right season to show here well inbetween...wonder if the elephant driving the catherine wheel car inspired Korky the cat in the 60's when he did it for the Dandy fireworks issue..


Love the way the cover is wrapped around another picture running along the side...
These covers are a feast for the eyes...

I bought this book when it came out.

And tiny details just a few lines and dots and there is a character
