Sidney's Stately Home from Buster and Monster fun



Buster and Monster Fun 25th March 1978

Theres nothing like a old house full of secret passageways..and fighting off intruders like the olden days ..and I'm sure he finds treasure hidden away in the end and can restore the home to former glory..

The Buster website doesn't know the artists name...my guess its Mike Western?
Whoever did draw it..they did a great job...

Tom Bannister's amazing comic work for DC Thomson


Desert Island Dick and Olly its amazing how these writers kept these Topper stars fresh for so many years..



The Mother looks very like Pop in a wig!! No wonder they had twins!
Here are two of the best and funniest comic strips by Tom from the Beezer...
Pop Dick and Harry not forgetting Towser!
and Colonal Blink, Aunty and Rover..



Great use of the large format...a great looking down shot in that last panel..


I love how the horse Pedro is a character in his own right in Figaro..Tom often used this device to good effect..





Al Change the last new character by Tom in the now smaller size Topper..a very interesting concept..done in the safety of a comic rather than real life!


Beano Book 1962 the inside book front and back covers..







The only time Tom drew for The Beano..




Heres where the pet which Tom is great at drawing took centre stage..
I love how he sometimes draws his characters talking to the reader..

See at comicsuk forum Rays great piece on Tom from The Comic Journal. thanks to Phoenix.
Also at the same post is some nice scans showing Tom putting his name and a likeness..wonder if he did have that kind of beard? thanks to Niblet!

Ray is and hopefully resuming later doing a post on the top 100 strips in Topper and Beezer showing which character had the most appearances...

Tom's work is well worth looking at again..it has a new perspective reading it as an adult..it really reached different ages his strip..

UPDATED! Happy 60th Dennis the Menace!!


David Parkins did a lovely bold style of Dennis and Gnasher..its a shame he couldn't draw more as he was very good..
http://www.comicvine.com/the-beano/49-26847/?page=6


A very early Dennis from The Beano book 1954


A nice one by David Sutherland..








This is the annual I bought at a jumble sell at Northmead middle school Stoughton Road Guildford...I was first in line and ran to the book section (I loved old comics even then)and got this gem...this is where I discovered David Law's Dennis...what a effect it had on me..Dennis was less happy for a start unless he was causing bother trouble...the art work was more darker..quickly drawn But full of life..








Gordon Bells take on Dennis...he also had a bit of Davy Law in his take on Dennis..


Nigel does a great Dennis in this era...it has lots of energy!!


I love this long tiger story which Tom drew each week..


A nice strong cover by Jim Hanson




A nice 80's Beano..
My era of Dennis when he didn't have teeth:)
Love David Sutherlands take on Dennis the Menace and I think the best artist to draw Gnasher..

I've changed my bear picture..after my Mum said what was wrong with it...which I agreed...here is the new changes I've made and it looks a lot better..
