The Nerv of it! Or "Hello, Putrid Date!"


Ken Reid reached a wonderful zenith with his crazy near year-long stint on The Nervs in Smash! in 1968-9, crafting what is for many the ultimate Bad Taste kids comic strip. Words are a bit redundant here so I invite you to take a look at a page of it and see how it's done!

That page still makes me laugh, 40 years later! Ken Reid was a genius and I'm glad we were the lucky ones who grew up on his work at its peak.

To be honest, as you know, Lew, I could have chosen almost ANY Nervs page by Ken, but this one always stuck in my mind with that word 'putrid'! Try putting that in a comic today!
