Ken Reid. His Complete Wham!, Smash! and Pow! Strips vol. 1

Irmantas Povilaika / · english

Back in the 1960's and 70's, Ken's pages stood in splendid isolation above the work of his fellow cartoonists - they were unique and had a style unto themselves. Other cartoonists gave readers things to laugh at, but Ken also gave them things to cringe at and linger over - great dollops of grotty grotesqueness to study while they chuckled. The strips that he drew for WHAM!, SMASH! and POW! - three of the five comics published in Odhams Press in the swinging 60's and collectively known as Power Comics - have never been equalled, and reveal one of UK's top cartoonists at the peak of his creativity.
