Tom Kerr is a British comic strip artist whose work has appeared in comics such as Look-in, the Eagle, Valiant, and TV21. He has also drawn for many annuals of the 1960s and 1970s including the Monkees Annuals, Look-In annuals etc.
Strips include 'Boy Bandit' in Jag Comic (later Tiger) 1968-1969 and the Tara King/Avengers strip in TV Comic (1968). He also worked for comics such as Lion, Buster, Thunder, the Eagle, Knockout, Valiant, Princess, TV21, Lady Penelope, Solo and Jet.
IPC planned a comic strip character called 'Captain Britain' which was to be drawn by Kerr during the early 1970s. Marvel later produced a similar character but the idea seemed to be dropped by IPC long before this.
1940s and 1950s
His early work appears as far back in 1949 when he drew for Pets' Playtime Comic published by Philmar. Later work included 'Fay' in the Weekend Mail Comic in 1955 and 'Monty Carstairs' in Mickey Mouse Weekly. He drew for many girls comics including Marilyn, School Friend, Girls' Crystal and June.
In 1970 he drew the first ever Adam Eterno strip in Thunder comic. This would be his only time doing so.
