Adventures of A Grandad

George Glencairn Urwin wrote for Sparky comic in the 1970s.

In the 1990s, he made Teenage Mutant Hero Turtle weapons out of wood for me and my brother. He looked striking with a pipe, and was sharp with a pen.

I’m proud of my grandad.

The thumbnails above are his stories (a list at the end, if you want to see every comic he did). I got hold of the old annuals today, and it was a pleasure to see how his creative mind worked.

Related: Les Barton, the artist who originally drew I-Spy, passed away recently.

I was saddened to read the news, but grateful to learn more about the comic strip they created together.

Thank you John Freeman for your research and hard work at downthetubes.
