Christmas - Tom Thug style

Here's a page of mine from Buster's 1990 Christmas issue starring Tom Thug, a character I originally created for Oink!. Although Tom was Buster's resident bully and usually had his comeuppance every week the editor asked that at Christmas time even Tom should have a happy ending. As with all the images on this blog, click on it to see it in a much larger and more readable size.

At this time Buster had recently moved to full colour interiors throughout the comic and this was the first Tom Thug colour Christmas strip. More would follow over the next several years but I remember being particularly pleased with this one, and going to town decorating the page for the season in traditional Christmas comic style.

Blimey! It's Another Blog About Comics! has now been online for two years, so my thanks to all of you who have dropped by, especially the regulars who keep coming back. Best wishes for the season!

That was the first year I was reading comics. I remember at the time how much fun your strip was and I loved the decorations around it - it was a great surprise.
