Johnny Cougar original art by Sandy James

A recent spot on that eBay for some rare Sandy James artwork (from Tiger). Images are a bit blurry, sorry! Not sure I've ever seen any of Sandy's art for sale before. The hammer price was £300 on this. By my reckoning the artwork is nearly 4 times bigger than the printed comic - enormous!

...and then how that page looked 'in real life' - you'll note that the Johnny Cougar with Splash Gorton banner on the art has been dropped from the printed page

and here's the printed page...

Johnny's no longer the cover star...
