    Alfred Sindall Tug Transom Episode #B155 Daily Comic Strip Original Art (the London Daily Sketch, 1950s). THIS LOT HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN. Rare to find an original from Tug Transom, one of the great British adventure features, from writer Peter O'Donnell -- better known for Modesty Blaise. O'Donnell characterized Tug as a favorite assignment, owing to the rich variety of heroic sailor-characters and the globetrotting nature of their exploits. This fine episode pivots on a staged slugfest between Capt. Tug Transom and crewman Alfie Stringer: "Make it look good, Alfie," mutters Tug. Of course, it is artist Sindall who makes it look good -- virile and urgent. Brilliantly written and magnificently drawn, the sequence dates from fairly early in the run (1954-1969), with no date of publication specified. Ink and blue-pencil shading over graphite on heavyweight Saville & Co. Illustration Board. Image area, 20.5" x 6.5". Moderate toning and handling wear. Very Good condition.
