Original Art: Garth on Heritage - Freak out to fear (H148)

H148 episode of  "Garth: Freak out to fear" Drawn by Frank Bellamy
For those of you who follow this blog, you might notice there is so little time between the fast approaching Heritage auctions that I'm using a template to get them done quickly. Hope this works for you.

Heritage have another Garth for auction, this time from the story "Freak out to fear"
Heritage describe this piece:
Frank Bellamy Garth Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 6-27-74 (Daily Mirror, 1974). Frank Bellamy drew the exquisite fantasy strip, Garth, from 1971 until his death in 1976. This ink over graphite on Bristol board daily has an image area of 21.5" x 5.25", and, aside from some light overall aging, the condition is Excellent. From the Ethan Roberts Estate Collection.
UPDATE: David Jackson pointed out to me it would very unusual for FB to use Bristol Board, his preferred board was CS10 - more of which in David's second part on Bellamy in the 1950s!

The whole story ran originally in the national UK newspaper the Daily Mirror  from 6 June 1974 to 27 September 1974 - (H132-H227)
