BRIGGS, Raymond (Redvers)


BRIGGS, Raymond (Redvers)
(1934-)
   UK illustrator and writer, active in both capacities from about 1958, and best known for several tales told in COMIC-book format, including Fungus the Bogeyman (graph 1977) and Fungus the Bogeyman Plop-Up Book (graph 1982), both borderline sf, in which the meticulously worked-out topsy-turvy world of the underground Bogeys, opposite to humans in every way, serves to illuminate life on the surface, and The Snowman (graph 1978), a fantasy. When the Wind Blows (graph 1982) is a singularly unrelenting SATIRE on the true worth of civil defence in any genuine nuclear HOLOCAUST. The two protagonists, naive and trusting "ordinary" people, follow the instructions to the letter, as though it were the Battle of Britain once again, and die slowly in horror and bewilderment.
