"Warrior Gang" comic strips & booklets

The "Warrior Gang" began in 1956 as strips in Young Warrior, a monthly children's comic paper published by the Worldwide Evangelisation Crusade (WEC) which was originally founded by missionary CT Studd and his wife Priscilla in the UK.

The first strip was "William the Warrior," drawn by cartoonist Dudley D. Watkins. (Watkins was also one of the top artists for D.C. Thomson in Scotland, the secular comics publishers of Dandy and Beano.) The next strip that Watkins drew was "Tony and Tina - The Twins."

These strips, filled with Scriptural quotations, were collected into a series of 32-page, black & white booklets known as the "Warrior Gang Series."

Known comic booklets in the series include:

"William the Warrior" [art by Dudley D. Watkins]
"Tony and Tina - The Twins"
[art by Dudley D. Watkins]
"The Warrior Gang in Action"
"More About Tony and Tina"
[art by Dudley D. Watkins]
"Tony and Tina Again"

"Tony, Tina and the Warrior Gang"
[art by Donald Grey]
"Dick and His Dad"
"Raj and Rani"
"Mary's New Friends"
[art by Donald Grey]
"Alan's Adventures"

Reportedly these comic booklets were published between 1960 and 1969, but they do not have copyright dates listed, so the exact dates for individual publications are unknown currently.
