DescriptionBob Lubbers Robin Malone Original Art dated 3-19-67 (NEA, 1967). The very first Robin Malone comic strip! Bob Lubbers had a long career in comic strips, working on other people's strips, such series as Tarzan, Heart of Juliet Jones, Long Sam, Secret Agent X-9, The Saint, and several others. This wealth of experience and skill allowed him to create a strip of his own, that was perfect for his art style... Robin Malone. The widowed Malone was a young and beautiful heiress to a multi-conglomerate business and financial fortune. The series was rich in excitement, intrigue, action, and of course lovely women! This historic first strip was created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 24" x 16". The logo is a hand-drawn paste-up. The board has been scored between tiers to allow mailing to the syndicate. It has also been folded down the center. A wonderful, hidden bonus would be the graphite roughs on the reverse, that Lubbers used to lightbox through to the front side. The lightly toned board is in Very Good condition. From the Estate of Bob Lubbers.
