Leo Baxendale Again

Leo Baxendale is best known for his work on DC Thomson's Beano and Beezer,  Odhams' Wham! and Smash!, and IPC's Monster Fun, but he worked on many other comics. Like this one, Lion, which generally didn't run 'funny' strips. But in 1965 these full page 'sporty' pieces graced its pages yet remain pretty much unknown outside of Bax Fans.

No wonder he wore himself out. It would take anyone else about three years to cram everything that's happening into that page.

That's fantastic Nigel. I haven't seen that particular page before. Leo's pages were so representative of their time. Very 1960s.
