1972These are the unique original Pen & Ink Wash by Gerry Embleton.
Two page instalment of the 'Catweazle' strip that ran in Look-in magazine, inspired by the ITV TV show starring the late great Geoffrey Bayldon. The strip was first drawn by Gerry Embleton.
Gerry could have chosen to draw in a very caricatured way, considering the show's comedic elements, but instead chose to play it straight, and thus the strips are very absorbing, with some inventive scripting from Angus P. Allen.
Page 13 has a comment in Gerry Embleton's own writing to the production staff.
