GIMME FIVE! - Carl Critchlow
Very veratile is that Mr Critchlow - painted artwork for role playing and collectable card games, brilliant work for 2000AD such as Judge Dredd and his own co-creation Lobster Random and his deliriously 100% own creation, Thrud The Barbarian, he's a top talent and a tale by him is always notched up to another level. Very pleased to have Carl join the ranks.
1. WHAT COMICS DID YOU READ WHEN YOU WERE A NIPPER?
Beano, Dandy, Beezer, Shiver & Shake and Warlord
2. AND THE FAVOURITE ONE OF THOSE?
Beano and Shiver & Shake
3. FAVOURITE CHARACTER?
The 3 Bears, Little Plum, The Bash Street Kids and Sweeney Toddler.
4. FAVOURITE ARTIST?
I think it was Leo Baxendale who drew all of the above in the late 60's, early 70's - if not whoever took over from him as well as whoever drew 'Union Jack' Jackson in Warlord and Ken Reid (see next answer)
5. IF "THEY" DECIDED TO BRING IT BACK, WHAT STRIP WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO WORK ON?
Not a strip, but my very favourite thing of all was 'Creepy Creations' from the back page of 'Shiver & Shake' drawn by Ken Reid which went on to become 'World Wide Weirdies' after it merged with Whoopee.
