Dave Westaway In Memoriam

I missed his passing, but Dave Westaway passed away last November 29. Who was Dave, you ask? Dave Westaway was the heart and soul of the ADCCC's (All Devon Comics Collectors Club) Brit newspaper comic strip reprints.

Needless to say that British newspaper comics are some of the most interesting and most neglected comics ever published (Brit comics collectors had eyes for children's comics only; the usual panorama in this art form's strange history... sigh!). It was through the ADCCC's booklets that I read many "Matt Marriott" and "Carol Day" story arcs.

Thanks Dave!
