Celebrating one of the finest talents in comics, The Tom Paterson Collection is a gorgeous hardcover bringing together strips from Tom Paterson, artist on titles such as Buster, Whizzer and Chips, and many more.
One of the most inventive and influential cartoonists British comics has produced, Paterson stands alongside titans such as Leo Baxendale and Ken Reid in the pantheon of British cartoonists thanks to his work on classic strips as Sweeny Toddler, Calamity James, Buster, Grimly Feendish, The Numskulls, Bananaman and Dennis the Menace.
With his unmistakeable trademark stinky, striped sock often appearing in the panels of his work – a useful identifier born out of an age where publishers frowned upon artists signing their work – Paterson’s rich visual gags gave each story that quality of instant re-readability.
Out on 25 November, this 192-page collection comes in a standard hardcover option or special limited edition hardcover, exclusive to the Treasury of British Comics webshop.
features some of Tom’s outstanding colour and black & white strip work for IPC/Fleetway from titles like Buster, Whoopee!, Jackpot, Whizzer & Chips and Oink! amongst others. With quotes from the man himself and some extra, added treasures, this is a must have for fans of British humour comics both young and old!
