well, at least the photography is good! LOL, I read your message as "here's an anecdote..." (antidote)I kept looking for the story....(blush)
Yes, it's the fact that the photography is such an exact match for the originals that makes it work, I think.
Hello!Yes - the infinite gradations re comics.We were allowed Eagle, Swift and Robin.The others were all deemed a bit 'common'.Then along came the 'educational' ones. But the gradations persisted. 'Look and Learn' was thought inferior. 'Knowledge' was OK.This last was given to me weekly by a kind relative - oceans of guilt because I was obliged to grateful for a publication I found SO dull.Do you remember Waldorf and Ceceil in Eagle? Glorious.Super blog, by the way.

You run a very tidy blog yourself, Mr. Gnome! I was thinking about Ronald Searle only the other day. I keep meaning to write a post on automata, and his name would of course be included - along with the likes of Rowland Emmett and Sam Smith.I see from your links that we have a mutual friend: Michael Burton. Mick and I were at art college together many years ago.
