Ken Reid's JINX
Jinx was Ken Reid's last character for The Beano before he stopped freelancing for DC Thomson in 1964 and jumped over to Odhams. Said to be the sister of Jonah, Reid's other agent of misfortune, Jinx only had a short run, appearing in the comic from No.1108 (12th Oct.1963) to No.1137 (2nd May 1964).
This episode is from The Beano No.1126 (15th February 1964). As you can see, it features all the manic black comedy and comedy violence that Ken would develop even further in his work for Wham!, Smash! and Pow! throughout the rest of the 1960s.
