Space Ranger

An advertisement from 1980 with art by Ron Smith. It's interesting to note that he's made no attempt to beef up the Rom character. I seem to remember the toy looked particularly unimpressive and weedy. Some of you may remember the long-running Rom: Spaceknight comic from Marvel in the US?



Booby Trap!

Some magnificent work by Ian Kennedy. Battle, dated 24th January 1981.

The Highwayman

 Not exactly comic art per se, but Charles Keeping's work did turn up in comics from time-to-time. Here's an article with more art for you to view. I think this originally came out in 1981 and reprinted here, in the School Journal in '85.

2000AD Sci-Fi Special

 A nice Mick McMahon cover for the 2019 2000AD Sci-Fi Special. 

Hm, I don't know of many artists whose style has mutated so much from year-to-year. I'll have to do a page of comparisons at some point.

Inifinity Magazine

 Check out Infinity magazine. It often has features on British comics. The issue pictured has an article about Battle Picture Weekly.

 The editor has a pretty idiosyncratic style, but the magazine's a pretty good read if you're a comics, TV or film geek. You can buy back-issues from their website, but the digital versions are as cheap as chips.
