MIke Western... a tip of the hat...

     The opening page from a new Tank Girl story.. (it's a WW2 type story.. !!!)

   I loved war comics as a kid, especially those drawn by Mike Western, who was one of the medium's greatest and most modest artists.

He drew Darkie's Mob, The Sarge, and HMS Valiant amongst others.
  His stories made me want to draw comics too.

Thank you, Mr Western.


Love'n Tanks..
