Interesting how it follows the Spidey template so exactly, not just in Billy ( The Leopard ) Farmer's choice of career, or his J. Jonah Jameson-like boss Thaddeus Clegg, but in the fact that The Leopard From Lime Street is as much of a klutz as Spidey ever was. I mean, tripping over power cables? Nice move, Billy!
Art here by Marvellous Mike Western, and isn't The Leopard's title logo / illustration the greatest lead in to a strip ever?
( Aside to any fans from the other side of the pond / the states: ' Lime Street ', not so much these days, but certainly in the days this strip premiered, was the downmarket, low income area of a british city. Generally where the docks / warehouses were ie. where poor people lived. Which is why Billy is so keen to score a whole Twenty Five Pounds from his boss. )
This is the story everybody's talking about, pals! Don't miss it!
