1973These are the unique original Pen & Ink Wash by Alfonso Font.
Two original ink pages by Alfonso Font, drawn for an adaptation of the classic Jules Verne book 'Michael Strogoff', Courier of the Czar, written 1876.
The pages from this story have never been offered for sale before, these are directly from the publisher many years ago, and have been kept in a private collection until now.
Both pages are full of action and beautiful inking techniques. A Xerox Title is attached to the first page. This 2 page episode was published in the fantastic British comic Look and Learn.
None of the beautiful artwork is obscured by text boxes or word balloons. The entirety of this artwork has never been seen before, when it was published the text obscured much of the beauty.
An extremely rare chance to own some fabulous early work by the brilliant Alfonso Font, who worked on Tex, Dylan Dog, Taxi, The Black Ace...etc
A great addition to any collection.Click for larger image ...
