Casey Court in 1932


Few places on the Internet cover British comics from this period so here's a selection of Casey Court half pagers that I've scanned from the back pages of six issues of Illustrated Chips in 1932. Artist Albert Pease at his finest!

Thanks, Lew.

With all what has been happening in Manchester & London these last few weeks, it's comforting to read your latest posts.

Thanks, Sid. Sometimes escapism can be useful in times like this.

Great stuff...

Great indeed, and probably an influence on Baxendale's early school yard drawings.

I would think so too, although Leo's biggest influence was Carl Giles and the large, busy cartoons he did.

Of course you're right, the link with Giles drawings is strong and he's talking warmly about it in his Very Funny Business book. Either way I wasn't aware of Albert Pease works and his drawings are a delight for the eyes - so thanks !
