This story first appeared in Hurricane Comic in 1964 under the name Two Fists Against the World. It was drawn by the great Argentinean artist Carlos Roume who also worked on Kansas Kid and Kit Carson (Cowboy Picture Library) and Olac the Gladiator amongst many other features.
When the story was reprinted in Look and Learn the original art was copied and grey wash tones added as well as new inking and text balloons.
This is what is offered for sale here: basically a hand-painted "stat" and not Roume's original work which has yet to resurface and in fact may very well not have survived. Each instalment was two pages in length.
The story appeared in Look and Learn in issues 469-486; 9th January to 8th May 1971.
