Did you ever hear anyone say “That picture had better be banned, because I might look at it and it might be very damaging to me”

Can't help you with that TWO article, but wasn't Norton Bikeman featured in the short-lived Road Rocket magazine. I think only 3 or 4 issues were printed.
Just 2 issues - I have both, (somewhere)

Yep I'm pretty sure Norton Bikeman was in Road Rocket ... and Ogri definitely in Bike magazine. Just trying to find out if anyone's got a copy of the TWO article or even better Road Rocket knocking around their garage ... writing a thesis at the mo and looking for some images of motorcycle comic characters.
If I can find my copies (see above) I'll scan the relevant bits for you, but "Norton BikeMan" wasn't really a comic - more a short story (in 2parts IIRC) with 3 or 4 graphics to go with the prose.
If you want more "Biking" comic characters there's a whole list :
Tina Tailpipe (pre dated Ogri)
"Planet Ovlov" (ran in MCN in the 90's)
Fred Gassit (superlatively odd - appeared in SuperBike in the 90s - Australian).
Joe Bar Team (originally french, IIRC Superbike ran the translated versions for a while)
I'm sure there's more...
it's not July 08
I looked and thats the only one I've got loads of "Bike" though
Hi I was just told that my late brother Dom Evans drew a version of Ogri from Planet Ovlov before his death in 1989...I think it was in bike magazine.. I never saw it and a lot of his cartoons disappeared at his death ( I am his sister)...I would love to see a copy if it is still around... I am trying to get all his Artwork together to exhibit it along with my own... Thanks....xxx
