Roland Fiddy was much appreciated for his stand alone comic panels and humour, winning first prize at several international cartoon competitions including Knokke-Heist in Belgium (1990), Beringen Festival (1984), Netherlands Cartoon Festival (1985), Sofia (1986) and Yomiyuri Shimbun of Japan (1988). It would be fair to call Fiddy one of the topmost cartoonists of his genre.
Fiddy was responsible for creating Sir Percy Vere, the noble yet nutty knight for Eagle, and Private Poon, the adventures of a clumsy conscript. These cartoon gems however were drawn for a series entitled 'Fun with Fiddy' , initially published in Ranger Magazine and subsequently in Look and Learn magazine when the two were incorporated into a single magazine.
This is a rare chance to own some of the finest single panel gag cartoon originals from the 1960s and 1970s.
