Frank Bellamy's Robin Hood

This image is taken from the work of the great British graphic artist, Frank Bellamy (1917-1976). Apart from producing strips for famous comics such as The Eagle, Look And Learn and TV 21, Bellamy also produced beautifully illustrated ‘Robin Hood’ episodes, for the Swift comic (20th March 1954-2nd March 1963).

His ‘Robin Hood and his Merrie Men’ and later ‘Robin Hood and Maid Marian’ appeared in Swift between 1956 and 1957. The Complete Frank Bellamy Robin Hood , which includes all those strips, will be published next year (2008).
