Charlie Grigg was one of my favourite comic artists when I was a child, and remains so to this day. He was the artist of Korky the Cat throughout my childhood, with his clear, superbly illustrated covers for The Dandy being the perfect start to each week's edition.
He could also draw adventure strips, and illustrated two of my all-time favourites, The Red Wrecker and The Umbrella Men.
Yesterday, The Birmingham Post ran a little tribute to the great man who is now 96 years of age. It covers his marvelous career but it is a story tinged with sadness, as it reveals that Mr.Grigg now suffers from vascular dementia. You can read the full article online here:
