Sorry, just noticed a post from Jonathan Coe who wrote the fantastic The Rotter's Club who was also a fan of Jack's. I see I'm in excellent company.

Was just going through old folders of cuttings I made in 1974/75 from Disc magazine and found a bunch of full page strips that I kept that I totally forgot about about. I was cleatly a fan when I was 16/17 years old, and on re-reading them I can see why, am laughing all over again, am loving Mad Microbes again. Wish I'd kept more of Jack's strips. Thank you Jack.

It's amazing how many people have contacted me to say they still have old JEO cuttings from, well, 40 years ago, and they still treasure them.
The last published episode was November 26th, 1977, so it will soon be the anniversary.

JEO was the first thing I turned to each Sunday when I received my paper.
The strip was a complete joy, crammed with mischief and gleeful, exuberant creativity.
Forty odd years and many relocations on, I still have my battered old suitcase full of cartoons, long after most of my treasures have been discarded. They are still fresh, and joyous, even if they smell a bit musty these days.
I am grateful to have had my teenage years enhanced by his happy talent and very glad you have been able to build this tribute to the man and his work.
