Ken Reid (1919–1987) was a British comics artist and writer, well-remembered for creating Roger the Dodger, Jonah, Faceache as well as the hilarious Creepy Creations and World-Wide Weirdies.

However, his work for the London publisher Odhams Press Ltd is considered by many to be the best British humour strips of the 1960s.

The two hard-cover volumes are the ultimate collection of Ken's strips in Wham!, Smash! and Pow! comics, collected together for the first time since Odhams Press published them in 1964 – 1969.

They are Frankie Stein – featuring the lovable friendly monster and his desperate hysterical maker Prof Cube, Jasper the Grasper – featuring a Disney-inspired but unmistakably British tight-fisted old skinflint, Queen of the Seas – a serialized maritime extravaganza featuring the pompous captain Enoch Drip and his one-man-crew Bertram Bloop, Dare-A-Day Davy – featuring a boy who can't resist a dare and shows clear signs of multiple personality disorder, and The Nervs – the absolute pinnacle of coarse, '60s-style politically incorrect satirical hilarity.
