Frank Bellamy TV Century 21 #146 Page 18 Thunderbirds Original Art (IPC, 1967). Things are not "F.A.B." for Brains, Virgil, and Scott on this page, but since they are British, "Thunderbirds are GO!" by page end. Gerry Anderson's International Rescue team created legions of fans on both sides of the Atlantic (and around the world as well), and Frank Bellamy's art style for this series was a bold and brilliant choice. Bellamy decided to do the strip with a more comic book/realistic style instead of drawing the puppets from the Supermarionation TV series. This also features a couple of great panels of Thunderbird 2, the fan-favorite craft from the beloved series. Signed under the image area, it is ink and watercolor on illustration board with an image area of approximately 12" x 16.25". There is production tape in the margins, however the image area is in Excellent condition.
