Widely regarded as one of the best artists to ever grace the British comic industry,
MIKE WESTERN, began his career on Knockout, having already spent time working for GB Animation.
During the fifties he shared art chores with Eric Bradbury on the popular western strip Lucky Logan.
In 1960 he moved onto TV Express where he drew No Hiding Place and Biggles.
Buster and Valiant followed and Mike found himself drawing long-running strips such as Wild Wonders.
In the seventies he had been even more prolific, illustrating Buster’s The Leopard from Lime Street, and the gritty Battle stories Darkie’s Mob and HMS Nightshade.
Returning to the new Eagle in the eighties, Mike also made an impact with the sport story Billy’s Boots (Tiger) and with his nineties Roy of the Rovers Daily Star newspaper strip.
