Death of a Wimpey
- Wed 18 Jan 2012
Introduction by Calum Laird, Commando Editor...
At the end of October last year at the Dundee Comics Day, two
men were honoured for their outstanding contribution to the comics
artform. Though they are not related, they share the same surname
and, as you can see from this book, they have both worked for
I'm talking, of course, about the two Kennedys, Cam and Ian, who
together produced the art for this tale. Ian's cover wonderfully
captures a stricken Wellington bomber trying desperately to land,
while the characterisation and movement Cam brings to the inside
art is outstanding...
... and let's not forget scriptwriter Ken Gentry's contribution
to this classic Commando story.
