T. C. H. Jacobs (1899-1976)
I was reading the latest post from my good friend Steve Holland about British comic legend Alan Hemus, D. C. Thomson storyteller, and thought I would search my files for samples of his writing. I had no luck, but, as a pendant to Steve's post I offer samples from an Amalgamated Press author, T. C. H. Jacobs, who used the pen name Jacques Pendower. The following are all from The Knockout and are illustrated by exceptional drawings by Derek Eyles.
The T. C. H. Jacobs literary papers are held at Pennsylvania State University, and they have posted his biography and more information on their website HERE.
This bottom piece is not by Eyles but gives another artist's version of The Lost legion.
