Celebs in Comics.

Back on this page and this page
I showed some pages from the past with TV stars who had wandered into the world of comic strip. Here we have three more, all from Buster in the 1962-5 era.

Left is Benny Hill as drawn by Reg Parlett.
Lower left is Charlie Drake, and I can't quite remember who drew it but it could be Roy Wilson. Excellent brush and penmanship, anyway.
Below is Whacko (Jimmy Edwards) again by Reg Parlett, which was remade in colour in the 1970s and made it in TV Comic that time, drawn by Bill Titcombe.
Let's just enjoy them.

I think the artist of the Charlie Drake strip was Arthur Martin. He started working in comics in the late 1920s and amongst his various strips throughout his career he drew the Arthur Askey strip on the cover of TV Fun in the 1950s.
