Frank Bellamy: The Good Doctor Artist












This is the work of Frank Bellamy, a British illustrator/comic book artist. He worked in the pages of TV Century 21. He is best known for his work on comics and illustrations for properties such as Doctor Who, Thunderbirds, as well as Dan Dare and the newspaper comic strip Garth.

Excellent page layouts, quite easy to read, and fantastic use of color. Obviously the British had a bit more respect for the medium than we Yanks.

ah, that's the stuff! Bellamy is an essential part of my childhood, as firmly entrenched in my psyche as the Jubbly and Bomb Sites. I remember asking Alan Davis who his favourite comic artist of all time was, and, without hesitation, he replied, Frank Bellamy. if you want to see comic art at it's very VERY best, Weirdo, mate, check out Bellamy's Trigon Empire. astounding stuff.

great to see you back up and posting again, by the way, fella.

" if you want to see comic art at it's very VERY best, Weirdo, mate, check out DON LAWRENCE's Trigan Empire. "
