Birdman and The Standout Chameleon

Most of you will be familiar with the work of cartoonist Trevor Metcalfe. He produced hundreds, probably thousands, of pages for various humour comics published by DC Thomson and IPC. Above is one of the strips he created, - the excellent Birdman and Chicken for IPC's Krazy Comic. This is from the 1977 Christmas edition. http://www.trevortoons.com/

What you may not know is that Trevor's grandson is also very talented. Self-taught artist Jordan Dean "Mystery" Ezekude has written and illustrated a children's book, The Standout Chameleon. Naturally, Trevor is very proud of his grandson's achievement, particularly as Jordan has autism. You can find out more about Jordan and his book, and order your copy, by visiting Amazon here:

My thanks to Trevor for letting me know about the book and my best wishes to Jordan in his work.

Nice of you to give my grandson Jordan this wonderful platform on your first rate blogspot.
My family and I are so proud of him with what he's achieved at university as well as his personal projects.
Happy New Year to you and all comic fans who follow your blog.
