Blub Meets Faceache

My apologies for being a bit quiet lately, I've been doing a lot of writing and drawing this week (amongst other things), but more about that soon. Today though, I bring you a treat, as here we have a crossover between Faceache and Blub The Sub, as illustrated by the one and only Ken Reid. Both of these characters appeared in Buster with Faceache drawn by Reid (and occasionally Frank McDiarmid) and Blub by Mark Bennington. As always, click on the image to enlarge, and then again to view in full size!

Blub was always upset because he was never first in anything. He was the fifth substitute in the school's football team and would often try to get the other four subs in hospital or out of the way, just so he could play a game. It wasn't just football he wasn't first in though, as this strip proves.

This Faceache strip can be found in Buster dated 13th December 1986, and here's the cover, sporting an illustration by Tom Paterson (what a line-up of artists Buster had, eh!).
