Growing up in the UK, I never read any of the DC or Marvel comics. I don't recall ever seeing them in newsagents. For me, comics meant the british humour comics from DC Thompson and Fleetway. The Beano, The Dandy, Whizzer and Chips, Buster.

And if there's one artist whose work i loved the most, even though he died 9 years before i was born, and as a child his name never registered, it was Dudley D Watkins. I loved his artwork in the old annuals and collections that my brothers and parents had bought.

He worked exclusively for DC Thompson, and was their top artist (he was the only artist to work for that company at the time who was allowed to sign his work). He worked for Thompson from 1925 until his death in 1969 (he died of a heart attack at his desk, halfway through drawing a strip).
