Original art sold
Just a quick note about a recent sale of a Garth strip by Frank Bellamy, number J70. This sold on eBay last month for $250 - which in Pounds Sterling today equates to £154, a nice sum for a well loved story.
This is an episode from The Angels of Hell Gap, which ran in the Daily Mirror from 15 January 1975 to 02 May 1975 (Numbers J12-J101). You just might be able to see the date pencilled in (presumably by the editor) of '26-3-1975'
The thing we all loved reading at that time was the opening episode, as Bellamy always did the equivalent of a comic's splash panel.
Here's the first episode of The Angels of Hell Gap
