Biography/History

Noel Cook was born in New Zealand, but he moved to Australia. In 1924 his comic strip 'Roving Peter' appeared in the Sunday Times. In 1933, his 'Bobby and Betty', a text strip with the text underneath the pictures, was published in the Daily Telegraph. Cook worked for publisher K. G. Murray, where he produced many science-fiction titles such as 'Pirate Planet', 'Peril Planet' and 'The Blue Ray'.

Australian comic book artist J. Kilgour was responsible for 'The Judy O'Neil Comic', about a Sydney private detective, published by J.S. Wilkinson in 1948. He also drew 'Ronald Keene' in Action, 'John Carr' in Pep and 'Billy Baines' in Commando, all three published by Offset Printing Co. in 1944.
