Whilst Harvey Kurtzman and Will Elder were working flat out every month to produce a full color and lavishly painted soft porn comic strip titled Little Annie Fanny for Hugh Hefner's Playboy magazine over in the UK, the one man power house art studio otherwise known as Ron Embleton was having the time of his life, producing all the artwork for Wicked Wanda to a script provided by Frederic Mullaly. As time went on, Embleton characteristically began to provide ideas and eventually scripts for the strip, as with Wulf it was once again becoming another Embleton production.
The strip lasted from 1973 to 1980 and was a truly credible riposte to Kurtzman and Elder's Little Annie Fanny.
The Book Palace, see if you can spot the Embleton self portrait in the large artwork.
