Joe Colquhoun Article In B&MC 288

Book and Magazine Collector issue 288 continues David Ashford and Norman Wright’s Great British Comic Artists series with a twelve page article on Joe Colquhoun, consisting of ten pages of mainly colour illustrations backed up with a two page Price Guide.

Joe Colquhoun may be best remembered now as the artist on Charley’s War in Battle, and this issue does tie in nicely with the release of the fourth Charley’s War book Blue’s Story, but the article also covers his earlier work including both writing and drawing Roy of the Rovers in Tiger.

Book and Magazine Collector 288 costs £3.40 and is available from newsagents or via their website.
