Stan Cross

Just back from Melbourne today. We had a decent trip, uneventful driving wise (always the best way) and we spent a pile of cash (and made none!). I bought quite a few things, some DVDs and books that I've been after for a while, along with piles of Aussie comics (more on that later) and other assorted goodies. The find of the trip would have to be the strip art as drawn by none other than the legendary Stan Cross. I haven't been able to date the art just yet, I presume that it's a post World War II Wally & The Major strip, but if anyone out there knows exactly what it is then let me know asap.

If I told you what I paid for it you'll only cry, needless to say it's in a good home now and it won't be going anywhere in any great hurry.
