McWilliams - DATELINE DANGER, 12/15/1968
Al McWilliams
Al McWilliams DATELINE DANGER Original Sunday Page Art 12/15/1968 This page features Danny, the first African-American lead character. The series ran from 1968 to 1974. “John Saunders and Al McWilliams debuted their comic strip Dateline: Danger! in late 1968. Inspired by the TV show I Spy it featured two intelligence agents working undercover as reporters. From the handful of strips I've seen, the interplay of the two protagonists, Danny Raven and Theodore "Troy" Young, is very similar to what was seen between Robert Culp and Bill Cosby. It was syndicated through Publishers-Hall Syndicate and lasted until 1974. It seems largely unremarkable, although it's evidently credited as the first mainstream comic strip to co-star an African-American in a lead role.” ~ (Sean) Kleefeld on Comics art area: 13 ¾” h x 20” w

Williamson - Flash Gordon #5, Page 2
Al Williamson
Al Williamson Flash Gordon #5, Page 2 “Alfonso 'Al' Williamson was the youngest member of the "EC family." He was only 21 years old when he joined the company in 1952, where he was considered "the kid brother," since most of his colleagues were family men. He especially loved doing pencil work, but was "deathly afraid" of inking, so Frazetta undertook that task for him. Williamson's style is fluid and almost cinematic. In this regard, the influence of Alex Raymond's 'Flash Gordon' was clearly to be seen. Eventually, Williamson worked on that very same character in the 1960s. Williamson spent his childhood in Bogota, Colombia. Upon his return to New York, he took art courses from Burne Hogarth, whom he assisted on some 'Tarzan' Sunday pages. He made his professional debut at the age of 17 with western and adventure series like 'Buster Crabbe' for Eastern Color, 'Billy the Kid' and 'John Wayne' for Toby and 'Outlaw Kid' for Marvel. Williamson contributed to EC's Weird Fantasy and Weird Science between 1952 and 1955, often in collaboration with the so-called "Fleagle Gang": Frank Frazetta, Roy Krenkel and Angelo Torres. In addition, he was present in publications by ACG, Charlton, Prize and Dell. In the 1960s, he assisted John Prentice on 'Rip Kirby' and did a 'Flash Gordon' comic book. For King Features Syndicate, he took over the 'Secret Agent X-9' daily, which was retitled to 'Secret Agent Corrigan' (scripts by Archie Goodwin). He made a comic adaptation of 'Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back' for Marvel in 1979. During the 1980s, he did artwork for 'Flash Gordon' at Western Publishing and 'Blade Runner' at Marvel. He teamed up with Brett Blevins to create a new version of 'New Mutants' and cooperated with Jim Shooter and John Romita Jr. on 'Star Brand'. Later on, he became Romita's regular inker on 'Spider-Man' and 'Bladerunner'. In the 1990s, he took on 'Flash Gordon' once again (in cooperation with scriptwriter Mark Schultz) and did another 'Star Wars' adaptation ('The Phantom Menace', published by Dark Horse). In 2009, a 'Sub-Mariner' story written by Schultz and drawn by Williamson was published in dedication to the character's creator Bill Everett. Al Williamson passed away in upstate New York in June 2010. He was one of several veteran comics authors to contribute to Matt Groening's 'Bart Simpson Treehouse of Horror 11' (2005), along with Angelo Torres, John Severin, Mark Schultz, Len Wein, Berni Wrightson, Marv Wolfman and Gene Colan. “ ~ Lambiek art area: 15½” h x 11” w

Walduck - DAN DARE "Prisoner of Space", Cover Art, 1954
Desmond Walduck
Desmond Walduck DAN DARE "Prisoner of Space" Original Cover Art 1954 From the United Kingdom's EAGLE magazine comes this front page painted artwork from the 1954 DAN DARE story, 'Prisoners of Space', with artwork by Desmond Walduck (a freelance artist who would sometimes be called upon to help out with the strip during times regular artist Frank Hampson was busy with other projects). This particular story was later reprinted during the 1960s where the original artwork had to be re-formatted to comply with a narrower page image. The original has now been re-instated close to its original 1954 printing (with some tape residue noticeable along the left hand edge of the first panel). The EAGLE masthead is in the form of an overlay - as all the cover originals from the DAN DARE serial had logos incorporated during the printing process and never present on the original artwork. art area: 18½" hx 14"w

Frank Bellamy THUNDERBIRDS BRAINS IS DEAD, Part 6 TV21 #167, Page 10 Original Comic Book Art March 27, 1968 Fully painted, vibrant artwork. Frank Bellamy's long-running UK comic-strip for TV21 magazine, as based on the famous Gerry Anderson THUNDERBIRDS puppet series, was a high point of the publication and his originals remain highly sought-after. This particular artwork had the right-hand part of panel three cut-out for re-use elsewhere (approximately half of the panel, where 'Brains' is rising from his chair saying, "Look out! Seize him"). The missing artwork element was later recreated and re-instated into the artwork and is a perfectly blended match that is barely noticeable. art area: 15" h x 12" w
