An interview with Mike Noble....

Sadly, Follyfoot doesn't get that much of a mention (only at about 15 minutes in) but this is the guy that drew all our favourite characters for 'Look In' magazine...

What a wonderful find - the artwork is unmistakable!     :D

I loved "Fireball XL5" - both the programme and comic strip.  If memory serves - the same artist drew "The Range Rider".

The interview also clears up something that mystified me at the time    >367<  - what was "Zero X"?   

Thank you for posting this!    >41<
