MIke Western... a tip of the hat...

     The opening page from a new Tank Girl story.. (it's a WW2 type story.. !!!)

   I loved war comics as a kid, especially those drawn by Mike Western, who was one of the medium's greatest and most modest artists.

He drew Darkie's Mob, The Sarge, and HMS Valiant amongst others.
  His stories made me want to draw comics too.

Thank you, Mr Western.


Love'n Tanks..
Rufus.. Team Tank Girl

Lovin' that, Ruf!
I'm instantly put in mind of lying on me bedroom floor reading issues of Battle and Valiant.

Ditto! used to love getting slightly sick as a kid and being unable to go to school but somehow perfectly capable of sitting up in bed eating sandwiches, drinking milk and reading all the old Valiants, Victors, Eagles and Hotspurs normally kept in a box out of the way.
Looking forward to this one...might try to pull a sickie in honour!!!
