THese are great, Sue. I have no ability to get my sketches fr. newspapers onto this forum. My favt. one is Bruno sinking in a body of water, trying to save himself by grabbing onto the kidnap ladder, the only flotsam around, but it isn't helping him.
I assume you know that some of the comic strips in that (later) colored comic book that the local FLemington newpaper produced 15 years ago were not originals, bec. they couldn't be found. So they filled those gaps with their own staff artist's conceptions of what they looked like and read. I found those missing strips a couple of years later (on eBay!) and gave them to them. They wrote an article about how closely they thought their man had come to the missing ones (as well as promoting my bus tours!). Well, I didnt think they really came that close, but it was an interesting project they undertook, regardless, and a worthwhile comic book which is still available today.
