Casey Court in 1947

I've a busy week ahead writing and drawing comics, so only time for a quick posting today. Let's journey back in time to see six consecutive Casey Court cartoons of the first months of 1947 from the back page of Chips. Excellent artwork by Albert Pease. Chips was a fortnightly comic at the time due to wartime paper restrictions still having an effect, so these appeared from early January to late March. Wonderful linework and creativity. Click on each one to see it full size.

I love Casey Court - especially by 'Charlie' Pease! There's a genuine slice of social history underpinning all the knockabout humour!

Agreed. I'm glad you like them, Phil. You too, Peter. Sadly the 1940s material isn't too popular on my blog but I'll continue to feature it from time to time as I think it's important to remind people of the history of UK comics from before they were born. I think it's unfortunate that some collectors are only fans of their own nostalgia. To me, discovering comics from before my time is like reading a new comic.
