THE ISLAND OF BEASTS...



Again, from the 1968 POW! Annual, a six-page tale entitled
THE ISLAND OF BEASTS, which sounds like a feminist's idea
of a 'men only' holiday resort - but we all know how they resent our
obvious physical and intellectual superiority in all things important,
so we'll forgive them their bitterness, resentment and envy.

 The artwork looks to me to be that of LUIS BERMEJO, who
also drew JOHNNY FUTURE in FANTASTIC, and is a superbly
talented illustrator, I'm sure you agree.  Anyway, I haven't read this
adventure in a few years, so let's re-explore its delights together.

Ready?  Then let's go!

Brilliant! Thanks, Kid! - You KNOW I love Luis' art, don't you?
Needless to say, if you come across any more, ....
But thanks for sharing this!

I think it's Luis' art, JP, but there's another couple of Spanish (I think) artists who drew very similar to him.

If it isn't, it's a very good copy.
My fab 4 Spaniards -
Carlos, Jesus, Luis, Solano.
Any favourites?

Kid said...

Any favourites? Yeah - ALL four of them.
