Who drew Fuss Pot?
I recently bought a bunch of Whizzer and Chips comics from the mid to late 1970's, and when looking at the above Fuss Pot strip I noticed something I wasn't exepcting - a signature! Now it's not the fact that there was a signature that's intresting (althought admittedly there weren't often many in the comic), but who's signature it was. I always thought (and it says this in Denis Giffords Catalouge of Comic Characters - go and check for yourself) that Fuss Pot was drawn by Norman Mansbridge, but the last panel is signed by Clive Stewart!
Well, you learn something new everyday don't you!
Well, it turns out Norman Mansbridge was indeed Fuss Pott's artist, but Clive just managed to do one of the best jobs of ghosting a strip I've ever seen! It's still a good strip, so I'll leave it here...
