Previously I posted scans of Australian cartoonist Terry Murphy's work on Sky Hawk comics on the Pikitia tumblr. These featured ink wash splash panels alongside black and white linework. The collection of Avian Tempest comics featured below largely eschew linework and are rendered in moody ink washes well suited to the wartime adventures and quite uncommon from other Australian comics of the era.

Across two series Silver Flash and his Frog-men and Captain Silver Flash artist/writer Virgil Reilly produced upwards of 1200 pages of comic art. Where did all that art go and where can I get four 300 page collections of it?
Australian reprint of US newspaper strip Tim Tyler's Luck published by Invincible Comics. Tim Tyler's Luck ran ran from August 13, 1928, until August 1996 and employed several artists including Alex Raymond and Burne Hogarth.
Bask in the glory of this comic by Terry Murphy, I like how he uses ink washes in the introductory splash panels, not just filling in line work but also creating textures with solid brush strokes of ink.
The Australian Boy children's paper was published fortnightly in Melbourne from 1953 to 1955. Following the format of English story-papers, The Australian Boy featured illustrated stories and a smattering of comics.
