The excellent Kazoop! blog is always worth a visit for fans of British comics and today is a perfect example of that. Blogmaster Irmantas has found the six Buster's Diary strips for the covers of Buster that Leo Baxendale did as fill-ins in 1967 and has posted four of them on his blog today. I was aware of them as they were listed in the Buster Index by Steve Holland and Ray Moore 20 years ago, but I don't think I'd seen them before.
Usually back then, a fill-in artist would be asked to 'ghost' the regular style but clearly Leo was allowed to do them in his own way with the distinctive style he was using at that time. Great stuff!
Head over to the Kazoop! blog here to see the four covers:
