c. 1960This is the unique original Pen & Ink drawing by Tony Weare.
Very rare surviving original for Matt Marriott western strip used in the London Evening News. The strip premiered in 1955 and ran until 1977. There has been much consternation amongst strip collectors as the original stories were never titled and each adventure starts its numbering from No. 1. Dating is therefore approximate.
Tony Weare's pen and ink work on this series was outstanding and this is a particularly fine example of his skill. A terrific piece of art.
Please note that all originals have a degree of red discolouration due to the glue used when placing the word balloons.
