Original Art: Garth on Heritage - The Mask of Atacama (G176)

G176 "The Mask of Atacama" Drawn by Frank Bellamy
This is the second of the Ethan Roberts Collection to be auctioned on Heritage in the last month from the Garth story "Mask of Atacama".  Heritage Auctions are trickling out the Bellamy parts of the collection one by one.  Interestingly they decided to 'hide' this behind the login process as it is deemed to have "adult content". So I've done you a favour and shown it here

Heritage describe this piece:
Frank Bellamy Garth Daily Comic Strip G-176 Original Art dated 7-26-73 (Daily Mirror, 1973). This daily strip from the storyline "The Mask of Atacama" is done in fantastic chiaroscuro style by Frank Bellamy, at the end of his career. Produced in ink over graphite on illustration board with an image area of 20.5" x 5.25", there is very slight toning and a corner bend. In Excellent condition. Adult content. From the Ethan Roberts Estate Collection. 
Want to read more? I showed these previously when the other strip from the story sold for $525.80 with 9 bids

So for extra added value here are the next 6 strips in the series taken from Menomonee Falls Gazette #163
