Holy S-Hit

Thursday Story Strip Day.

I have shown quite a lot of The Saint from the late fifties and early sixties, because for a while it was ghostdrawn by Bob Lubbers. But I have more. The Saint was a widely distributed strip and I have always scanned it when I came across it. So here is a larger run rom 1958 adn 1959, not complete but running up to the point in September 1959 when Lubbers took over. added a couple of black and wite scans I could pull from papers on microfiche, but the main attraction here are the selfmade color scans of course. Not complte, but still a good read and at least nice to look at The artist is former Eisner assistant John Spranger, who produced quite a popular strip for more than ten years. Too bad about the goatee.

Thanks for this. Big fan of Spranger's Saint. Would love to see it in a collection. And I love the goatee!

I am afraid a collection of the Saint would have happened if it was possible. Maybe the copyright holders are holding out for more money.
