Veteran comic artist Mike Noble is to attend the Gerry Anderson-inspired Andercon in Heathrow, London, next April.
Mike Noble is the legendary British comic artist and illustrator who began his career drawing strips such as The Lone Ranger in the 1950s. His many credits include his work for TV Century 21, including with Fireball XL5, Zero X and Captain Scarlet. He was also one of the artists to work on Star Trek for the later incarnation of TV21.
In the 1970s and 80s he was a regualra artist on ITV's Look-In, drawing strips ranging from Follyfoot to Timeslip. Mike’s iconic strips are known and loved by generations of Anderson fans throughout the World.
“We’re honoured that Mike will be joining us at the convention,” say event organisers Anderson Entertainment.
