  1. Here are a few suggested artist names:

    • Terry and the Terrible Twins (Pages: 13-16) [Art: Doris Kinnear]
    • Dopey Dora – The Hope of the School (Pages: 28-30) [Art: Charles Morgan]
    • Base-Line Barbie (Pages: 46-48) [Art: Ron Smith]
    • Katy O’Connor (Pages: 56-59) [Art: Ron Forbes?]
    • The Secret of the Red Balloons (Pages: 63-65) [Art: E C Julien]
    • The Dancer from the Isles (Pages: 66-70) [Art: George Ramsbottom]
    • Margie the Swimming Marvel (Pages: 79-81) [Art: Ron Forbes?]
    • Mirror, Mirror – (Pages: 107-109) [Art: E C Julien]

    Personally, I’m not sure that the cover of Bunty #68 (Page 19) is by Doris Kinnear. The technique is certainly good enough for her, but I think it lacks her individuality, and the drawing/inking seems a touch stiff in places. I wonder if this might be a very good quality substitute drawing in her style.
