Welcome to frank bellamy - the checklist

Frank started out in advertising and moved to a regular spot in his local paper, the Northamptonshire Evening Telegraph, drawing a one shot gag in the footballing supplement "The Pink 'Un" which recorded satirical events concerning the previous week's football match. The content is very parochial and uses regular gags on Corby, Luton and Peterborough clubs. Due to heavy commitments in comic strip work he didn't return to newspaper work until a couple of one-offs in the sixties but then gained praise for his regular strip Garth in the Daily Mirror, which he drew until his death in 1976
