Original Art: Thunderbirds from TV21#178

This blog is turning into an advertising space for sellers! But don't worry I'm working on an article which is to do with Bellamy and a cover that might be attributed to him ...or not. Watch this space!

TV21 #178
Anyway, Comic Book Auctions Limited has an original piece by Frank Bellamy for sale (lot # 118) which comes from TV21 #178. The description reads:

Thunderbirds original artwork (1968) by Frank Bellamy from TV 21 No 178
Scott has a daring plan to rescue Virgil and the marathon runners from the tunnel of fire …
Bright Pelikan inks on board. 18 x 15 ins £800-1000

It looks to be well preserved with the blues still vibrant. The story (The 2068 Olympics) ran in TV21 issues 173 - 178 (11 May 2068 - 15 June 2068) and for those who want to read the story, here are the two pages from that issue for your enjoyment. 

TV21#178 p.10

TV21#178 p.11
If you want to read the whole story you can buy it in the recent collection or even in e-format... details here
