Football in Comics (Part 2)!

It's time for part 2 of my football in comics post! This time we take a look at the 1965 Tiger annual! First up is the mystery of Chinese football! Bet you didn't know these facts!
Of course, Tiger is known for giving birth to one of comics most successful footballers - Roy of the Rovers! This story is about a goalkeeper who gets some ancient perfume for just 5 bob! This strip was printed on glossy paper, but sadly isn't in colour. Drawn by Paul Trevillion.









Suprisingly, that's all on the footy side of things in this annual - but fear not! I'll be back soon with some more footballing antics! If your a fan of humour strips - make sure you keep your eyes peeled!

Another nice installment.
i don't recognize the artist since i was never exposed to British comics in the same way as i was to the American market, but from a small search i did the art seems to be by Paul Trevillion.
