    Description

    Frank Bellamy TV Century 21 #142 Page 18 Thunderbirds Original Art (IPC, 1967). Published weekly, and with a look resembling a newspaper that was reporting on the "news" of the TV shows on a UK channel, this comic series rendered some lovely original stories about those shows. This page features some of the technology that made the series so popular. The Mole is exiting a cargo pod on the transport vehicle Thunderbird-2. It also features two of the Tracy brothers, Scott and Virgil, along with the team's scientist "Brains." Like several of the artists on other Gerry Anderson properties, Frank Bellamy chose to draw the characters like real people instead of looking like the puppets used in the TV show itself. The page is ink and watercolor over graphite on illustration board with an image area of 12" x 16.25". The colors are simply beautiful. There is production tape on the edge margins, otherwise in Excellent condition.
