My 1974 Topper Annual was a favourite then & remains so today, so thanks to The British Sketchbook for brightening my day by including accurate reproductions of old Topper favourites like Nick Kelly & Cedric, & Figaro the shambolic Mexican cowboy cum bank robber.

Although appearing at first sight to be merely a collection of old cartoon characters drawn afresh by the likes of Craig Conlan, Mark A Jones, Steve Martin & editor Darryl Cunningham, the work showcased in The British Sketchbook does have more depth; some are studies into drawing style while others offer new developments upon familiar characters.

Whatever, the works are well drawn & show precision & craft. Now all these people need are some decent scripts.
