A Lot Of BL

Thursday Story Strip Day.

Having shown a lot of Bob Lubbers' work the last few weeks, I thought I'd go an collect what I have of his late 1959 Saint run. he did this, while he was still doing Long Sam, filling in between John Spanger and Doug Wildey. I have most of this three month run, althoug I may come back and add some of the missing strips in the end. The Sundays are the best and I have gone back to my own prvious psoting to gather what I have and added another I found. I am not completely sure when he started, it may have been before John Sprangers' signature disappeared from the strip. We'll get back to that later, when I find a suitable way to share the rather large run of Spranger Sundays I have. December 1st is the last Lubbers daily I have, but the last Sunday seems to be dated the thirteenth. By the 21st of december Wildey has stepped in. All in all I think Lubbers did one full three month story.

Thanks for posting all this Saint stuff. I like Lubbers' take on the strip. I'm glad he steered the characters in a more realistic direction. Much as I like Spranger's art I was never comfortable with the exaggerated bad guys.Looking forward to the Wildey strips.

For the Saint they are not bad. But I find them to be the weakest of all of Lubbers' output. I am compiling some more Wildey Saints and they are just great, especially the Sundays.
