The long running series of articles on Great British Comics Artists by David Ashford and Norman Wright in Book and Magazine Collector has reached part 28. This time the subject is Ron Smith and it is the first time that the series has covered a living artist.
Ron Smith in Book and Magazine Collector
Book And Magazine Collector issue 298 has an 18 page article and price guide on the artist who may be best known for Judge Dredd. However Ron Smith started out with Amalgamated Press in 1950 before quickly moving to Dundee where his work covered DC Thomson’s boy’s story papers, girls comics, humour titles and annuals. Added to that are new Eagle, Mask, several Marvel UK titles, newspaper strips and even the Green Cross Code Man and it shows just how varied his career was.
• Book And Magazine Collector Issue 298 is available for £3.50 from WH Smiths and Easons, or from the B&MC website
