Mike Knowles

Publisher info

Now semi-retired I’ve been a published writer in the UK for over 40-years. I worked mainly in comics and became one of the top writers at D. C. Thomson and the former Fleetway/IPC publications. I’ve also worked in TV, radio, and animation and spent three years as a gag writer. Finally, I also contributed a number of gonzo style articles to one of those “top-of-the-shelf” magazines. However my foray into gonzo journalism was conducted without the late Hunter S. Thompson's voracious appetite for mind bending substances. (Well, let’s just say I didn’t take as many as he did).
