Original Art: Garth on Heritage - Jenghiz Khan (H275) & Angels of Hell's Gap (J24)


H275 episode of  "Garth: Bride of Jenghiz Khan" Drawn by Frank Bellamy

Heritage have 2 Garths for auction and again one is from the story "Bride of Jenghiz Khan" I never understand why they 'lock' the viewing of some nudity and not others, so you might need to log in to see it on their site, but here it's easily available!

Heritage describe this piece:
Frank Bellamy Garth Daily Comic Strip H275 Original Art (Daily Mirror, c. mid-1970s). This daily strip displays the fantastic chiaroscuro artwork of Frank Bellamy, from the end of his career.

J24 episode of  "Garth: The Angels of Hell's Gap" Drawn by Frank Bellamy
 The second is episode J24 from "The Angels of Hell's Gap" - Bellamy loved his Westerns so was in his element.
