Ken Reid was a British comics artist who worked in newspaper comics in the middle of the 20th Century and later moved into working for comic books, notably for The Beano.
He is probably best remembered now for his later series of comically horror-themed posters called World Wide Weirdies that ran in a publication called Whoopee!.
These were often intricately detailed (the small reproductions here don’t do them justice) and wonderfully grotesque; as well as frequently quite funny. They were based on puns or other naming suggestions submitted by readers. Reid drew them in a circular frame surrounded by smaller drawings of oddball characters, of which there were at least two sets.
There is an extensive Flicker set of Reid’s World Wide Weirdies, as well as other articles and mentions that I’ll try to list below.
