The Daily Mirror Book of Garth

Printed in 1974. I think it's safe to say that Frank Bellamy was one of the finest artists of his generation. His colour strip work was both dynamic and exciting to read. Most famous for his work in Eagle (Dan Dare, Heros the Spartan; Fraser of Africa, the life story of Winston Churchill) and TV21 (Thunderbirds) in the sixties he later took over the long-running Garth strip that appeared in the Daily Mirror newspaper. This cover is from a collection of the Garth daily strips. Go here for more info.
