Eric Roberts at the AP..

Some months ago I prepared this little stripography of Eric Roberts work for the Amalgamated Press but never got a chance to post it. So here it is now in all its
succinct glory!

Mike 318(31/3/45)-793(8/5/54) initially not every week rpts 3/6/61-17/6/61,
1/7/61-19/8/61, 2/9/61.
Mike and Dimps 794(15/5/54)-945(6/4/57)
Sinbad Simms (Shark Boy of the South Seas) 946(13/4/57)-1011(12/7/58)
Billy Bunter 1013(26/7/58)-(21/11/59)
Billy Bunter's Six of the Best 1038(17/1/59)-(30/7/60) joke page with a 'Billy Bunter's
Tuck Box' as a prize comprising sweets from confectioner Fry i.e Chocolate Cream,
Crunchie, Punch and Turkish Delight.
Only missing a single week in fourteen years (No1012) Eric Roberts holds the record as the artist with the longest continuous tenure in the pages of the comic.

Mike 445(17/8/57)-492(7/7/58) the strip was then taken over by the artist 'Kim'.

Sorry that the blog pictures below have disappeared..its my own thought I'd forgot to reduce the image size resoloution.. and have exceeded my limit..they should come back on the 9th Dec..
You have exceeded the 10 GB monthly bandwidth limit on your free
Photobucket account. As such, your image and video links have been
temporarily disabled. Your images and videos have not been deleted but
will be reactivated on the 09th of the month, when your bandwidth
usage resets to zero
. So I'm a bit stuck until then...:(
Also I've got two craft fairs this week also did one yesterday and also Kim's bookshop needs more cards for Tuesday so I'm very busy at this time of year..
I will upload later...

Hi great blog!

I've seen your other website before with other artists for DC Thompson commics - and I love comics like The Beano and the Dandy; and today is actually the 73rd birthday of the Dandy and I did a post at my blog. I've got a lot of comic collection of the Beano and the Dandy, and I've scanned a few comics of Desperate Dan I have, and I was wondering if you are interested! - my blog!
