Many thanks to my good friend Malcolm Norton for sending through this potpourri of Denis McLoughlin imagery. These covers which take in the two color comics as well as the annuals he was creating for T.V. Boardman are like a window into the 1950's. Although McLoughlin's draftsmanship was not in the same league as contemporaries such as Frank Hampson, Frank Bellamy or Ron Embleton his feel for dramatic lighting and the inventiveness of his ideas ensured that his artwork always had added appeal.
Even when the content was as anachronistically weird as some of this stuff.
