THE GREAT BRITISH COMIC BOOK WEEKEND - PEST OF THE WEST

The always helpful Keith Chapman has here provided us with a two page scan of Pest of the West as an example of some of his comic book scripting, together with a fascinating little bonus - a page of his original script. The story originally appeared in the Wham! Annual for 1967 and given Keith's current-day status as western writer Chap O'Keefe and his long association with the Archive it is a honour to reproduce the strip here.

Readers cans click on any of the images for a larger, easily read version which will open in their browser.

Oh wow! I was a HUGE fan of Wham back in the day and oddly enough I only recently started going through my back issues and Pest Of The West was always one of my favourites! So Chap used to write it, eh? Amazing.

Yeah John Chap has written many comic strips over the years and if you search the Archive you'll find a strip he did for The Saint which is a great read. Find it HERE http://tainted-archive.blogspot.com/2009/09/saint-settles-score-by-keith-chapman_13.html
