Advertising comics (6) - Money Fun - issue 2

So here's the front cover to Money Fun, Denis Gifford's National Savings Bank comic

And here's the back cover
The highlight is probably the involvement of artist Basil Reynolds who could turn his had wonderfully to realistic art or more conventional cartooning - here he's reviving Skit, Skat and the captain who had originally been published in the 1930s


Contributors to this 8 page, July 1982 publication include Denis Gifford, Les Barton, Brian Walker and John Richardson, whose original centre-spread art (shown below) is currently on sale here for £75
