Thursday Story Strip Day.
Of all the artists working in the Milton Caniff style, Frank Robbins was the most spectacular. Most or all of his Johnny hazard was reprinted by Pacific Press, but unfortunately not always very well or from the best copies. Here are some early Sundays in their full glory.
In the comments Smurfwhacker asks if the colors are all right and indeed this is "one I did earlier". Eventhough I have improved my color restoration skills I remain in awe of those skills in some others (like for isntance the restoration of the Frank Frazetta illustration in the Craig Yoe book on the right of this). They seem to jave a knack or a trick or software I do not posess. My main aim here was to restore the black and white lines, which were not very well kept in the Pacific books. Here is a sample of one of the brownish scans I had to work with. As you can see, Robins did indeed use a lot of white here.
