Ian Kennedy is the artist once again but from DC Thomson’s long running “For Girls” title Bunty and a far cry it is from Kennedy’s more traditional DCT duty providing war covers for Commando.
By Christmas 1990 Bunty had moved away from DCT’s tradition newsprint onto higher quality paper which allowed for full colour rather than four colour covers. Here we have Bunty favourites The Four Mary’s caroling in front of their St Elmo’s school.
