Biography/History

"Calvert's Trig Matson was an anthology featuring the eponymous range-riding detective who worked for the Cattleman's Association. The comic also featured the adventures of Ace Gremlin and Nutkey, which was credited to Terry Brand, and humours vignettes titled Bobby Socka ... [and] Crime-Busters Inc. initially drawn by Michael Trueman. The comic went on to feature the early work of Kevan Hardacre on the title strip, and all the issues included a text story written by prolific pulp fiction author Gordon Bleeck..." -- Cliffe, Graeme.
