Paul Trevillion's take on The Munsters in TV21 was good on liknesses- not all TV characters were rendered as faithfully!
Harry North's full-colour 'On The Buses' was a real highlight of Look-in, witty, carefully drawn and beautifully coloured.
Les Dawson, Superflop, was drawn by the multi-talented Brian Lewis. Brian tackled almost every type of comic strip and illustration in his too-short life, From broad comedy (Space Jinx) high drama (UFO)
horror (House of Hammer) to total lunacy (Moon Madness). This strip from Look-in represents a late return to comedy for Brian, to me it's one of his finest pieces.
Nowadays, of course, TV shows generally have their own dedicated comic and it runs for six months or a year until the TV show is cancelled, and that's it. A shame.
