DC Thomson bids farewell to Bill Graham


DC Thomson editor Bill Graham - whose credits include Starblazer, Warlord and Spike and had a long and varied career with the Dundee-based company - has just retired.

Previously interviewed by Jeremy Briggs for the site, what we haven't published before is a picture of him with his lesser-known brother — PC Murdoch from the Oor Wullie strips!

"The story goes that the comics/boys’ papers staff held a PC Murdoch look-a-like competition and he won," claims Commando editor Calum Laird, who kindly sent us this picture.

"He was, however, the only entrant. And he had no idea the competition was going on!"

downthetubes would like to thank Bill for all the support he's given this site over the past few years and wish him all the very best for the future.
