Mr Clibborn was best known for the cult cartoon series Curly Wee and Gussy Goose published in a number of newspapers including the Liverpool Echo .
Research indicates that much of his original artwork was destroyed by fire. However some examples have survived
Here's a typical frame , from a small private collection , depicting Curly.
It is an original , numbered 7521 , stamped 2011 on the reverse.
From the mid 1940s onwards a number of annuals were released. The second , from around 1946 was titled "Curly Wee and Company"
This example , with slight water damage to the outer cover , contains a personalised message from Margaret and Roland Clibborn , 1965
The last reported cartoon by Clibborn is numbered 10274.
The frame below  was drawn shortly before he retired from the world of Curly Wee due to poor health.
By then he needed a little help with the artwork as can be seen by the drawing on the right .
