Jack's guestbook





Comment:
At the time of Jack's death we had a guestbook that many people signed. I know that the comments left were a comfort to Jack's family.
We had a new guestbook, but lack of support and software issues meant that the original and its replacement had to close.
This is a new one with some recent comments added. Please feel free to add more.

Hi... absolutely loving wandering back through JEO's work, have only recently found this site but it's such a pleasure to be re-living my Disc and Record Mirror years, and having been in the FLR fan club... I wonder - has there ever been thoughts of assembling JEOs work into a book? I'm not a publisher but I have a Design & Print shop, and I'm a low-level cartoonist - currently working on Split Knee Loonacy cartoon strips and have enjoyed using cripplingly bad puns in my cartoons The Groaner, in that JEO way. Anyway, if there is any interest in creating a book to celebrate JEOs work, someone contact me, I'd love to get a ball rolling.

As News Editor of Record Mirror in the mid-late Seventies, I have fond memories of Jack and his wonderful imagination. I recall commissioning - in 1976 - the Sun/Father Christmas Christmas card (illustrated in your Miscellany section). Thanks Jack.

I was following a bit of research and saw my name on your site. I'm so proud to have done my little bit to promote Jack whose work I loved.
Thanks for sharing so much fun!
Norman

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.

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.

I love your JEO site. Like you, I was an obsessive fan and when I was 13 preserved a large number of the strips (mostly 1974-75) in a scrapbook which I still have somewhere.
I grew up to be a writer myself and have published a number of novels including What a Carve Up! and The Rotters’ Club. The humour in these books – in fact my sense of humour generally – was massively formed by JEO. I wish I had found time to tell him this before he died.
I’m writing to let you know that if you look very closely at episode 220 (‘The Tarzan Stripes’) you will see my very first appearance in print in the UK! I received the standard-issue plastic warthog by way of reward.

I must tell you I LOVE what you've done in keeping JEO alive and well on your site.

I have been looking through some old Disc magazines and in particular the J.E.O. cartoons that I used to enjoy, so it was great to discover your site and find out more.
Good to see some of the cartoons online. I think it’s a nice tribute to the man as well.
