Saber King of the Jungle

Super-fiddly art by Denis McLoughlin from Tiger and Hurricane dated 6th April 1968. One thing I liked about McLoughlin's work was his use of texture, but here's an insane amount of detail for something printed on newsprint (the paper being absorbant meaning that the ink spreads a little, thickening the line-work). Look at the detail of the broken running-board of the car (on the left) in the blown-up panel below. Also, the dog eyeing up the sausages hanging out of the bag (on the right).

  1. Now there was a man with a firm grasp of black!

    Some beautiful composition, and action and even wit.... Oh for a draw-off between Denis and Joe Colquhoun...
