Ken Reid (1919-1987) was a writer and artist for many popular strips in British comics such as the Beano
His first strip was the Adventures of Fudge the Elf
which he drew for the Manchester Evening News
between 1938 and 1961.
After that, during the 50s and 60s he drew Roger The Dodger
for the Beano
, Angel Face
for the Dandy
and Frankie Stein
and Shiver And Shake
He also created the back cover posters (Creepy Creations
critters and World Wide Weirdies
) for Shiver And Shake
which were caricatures and monsters done in a style similar to those done by Basil Wolverton
His final strip was Face-ache
which he wrote and drew for Buster
until his death in 1987.
His strips were normally boldly inked and the characters typically had bulging eyes and mad grimaces.
