(1) Details from Brian Bolland’s covers to Titan Book’s two collections of Sydney Jordan & Willie Patterson’s Jeff Hawke strips, and (2) a reference by Giles to Jeff Hawke in his cartoon of November 24th 1957, from his12th annual collection of cartoons. (I wish I could print the entirety of the Bolland covers, but they’re too big for my poor little scanner.)
One of the most brilliant political cartoons of all time: Philip Zec’s Here You Are! Don’t lose it again! Published on 8th May 1945 at the Second World War’s end, it can reduce me to tears of gratitude, regret, admiration and shame. (Scanned from Donald Zec’s exemplary Don’t Lose It Again, as published by The Political Cartoon Society.)
The ‘Captain Britain Mask’ & ‘Captain Britain Boomerang’ that came with the character’s first two comics in 1976, as discovered this very morning during a massive clearing out of my study. (To my surprise, I found two of the Captain’s masks, which would have to mean the original’s been slowly but determinedly replicating itself there in the dark.) The covers are by Lieber & Giacoia.
