The Copper's Art of Diving

Here's a couple of quick items from the pages of Jag, both featuring police divers. I'm not sure who the artist is on the second piece but the first is by Art of Diving favourite Mike Western.

The Dangerous Art of Diving

In 1968, Fleetway Publications launched their third boys' comic named after a big cat, Jag. Unfortunately it couldn't replicate the success of Lion and Tiger and it was merged with the latter after just 48 issues. Those 48 issues did provide some material for this blog though and I'm sharing some today.

This first piece from issue seven is illustrated by Tom Kerr, a prolific contributor to Fleetway/IPC's range of comics. Regular Art of Diving readers will recognise the story told in the last few panels! (Click for a larger image).

These next three pieces also feature real-life incidents.
