I would also like to thank Ian Thomas for his inspiration. For reviving, bringing
to our notice Horner’s CP and for his continuing work to make him better known today.
For starting this project and his continuous work here and... more. As a practicing
cartoonist Ian acted as my mentor for all things Cartooney, things practical and
things just plain silly. I still think that practicing cartoonist sounds...
Jim Godings entry to our group was a turning point. His simplified approach to scanning
and “cleaning up” old newspaper strips and his sheer energy, turned us from a group
wondering about the smattering of AH’s stories we might “one day show” to scanning
the entire CP saga in less than a year. He also suggested the Annotations and has
so far written most of them.
We could not have done this without Martin Foots set of the early strips and his
willingness to lend us his collection.
Thanks Martin and indirectly to your late Dad who collected them.
For a long time there were two Adventures which no one seemed to own. Christian Owens
supplied these and more. Associated as he is, with the “London Cartoon Museum”,
his advice & encouragement is valued and valuable.
I would also like to thank Gilbert Hall and Gavin Betts for their erudite and amusing
additions to Jims Annotations and the occasional pat on the back. Sometimes needed
but always appreciated.
Thanks Gilbert and Gavin.
And of course Mick, who grounded me in reality. It’s all about the stories. Remember
Mick “...he also serves who only stands and waits...”
My late Dad started me on all this. Thanks Antons Susts [Dad] for bringing home
“The Age” every night and pointing me to Colonel Pewter. Thanks Dad for cutting out
the Adventures long after I had lost interest and moved from home. Your cuttings
helped start this.
