Shiela L. Bave, née Newton, wrote scripts in British humour comics from the late 1960s for Odhams Press, Fleetway and IPC, mostly for strips drawn by her husband, Terry Bave, who she married in 1952.
You may be interested in know that Terry Bave, who was at the heart of English cartooning and had a long, successful career as an artist working on children's comics, such as Whizzer and Chips, Cor!!, Buster, Whoopee, Dandy and Beano, has just published a book!
From the heyday of the sixties and seventies, Terry saw the rise, and eventual decline, of creative cartooning for children's comics. His story is not just a tale of one artist, working in creative partnership with his wife Shiela, but the story of comics themselves
