Free the One Wagner (Wagner One, really)

Cartoonist and cartoon historian Arnold Wagner has a terrific blog at the best of times, but he has really outdone himself with his article on Richard Dennison Taylor. You can Google RDT all you want and I'm betting that outside Arnold's blog you'll find very little info' on this fantastic cartoonist, and brilliant surrealist artist. Taylor's weird strip, 'Mystery Men', is likely to be even more difficult to find as a result of the more modern 'Mystey Men' comic book and film.

For a look at the strip you'll have to swing on over to Arnold's blog, but I can't resist showing one of RDT's paintings, which he may well have signed 'Horsolam vin Sshaddebok of Frodokom':
