    ugh, that hurts. Our childhood heroes are leaving us.

    Sinnott was my favorite Kirby inker followed by Giacoia.

    Frank Humphris was a British artist whose work appeared in several publications. I seem to remember Black Bow from Eagle in the mid-late 60s. I think he was a white man who had been raised by the Cheyenne but who went East to study medicine before returning West as a doctor, though he may have been Cheyenne all along. Like the Lone Ranger, he went around righting wrongs in the American West. Not quite sure how he transformed or whether he kept his Cheyenne duds in case or what, but I recall him communicating with spirits through a tree. I remember having tin-foil-wrapped chocolate bars with colour illustrations from the Black Bow strip. Humphris had illustrated another Western strip, Riders of the Range, in The Eagle. His interested in the old West led him to write and illustrate at least three books on the subject for Ladybird Books: The Indians, The Cowboys and The Battle of the Little Bighorn. Black Bow later turned up in Look and Learn with a different artist, though I'm not sure whether Humphris also drew it for that publication. He was originally Strongbow the Mohawk for an earlier publication called Comet, but I believe the tribal affiliation was changed to fit the Western setting and because there was a Strongbow cider on the market. I don't think Humphris drew any of this one. There was another strip called Strongbow the Mighty and as far as I know, this had nothing to do with the other one.

  17. The splash for “A House There Was” is the one where Reed has two left hands.

    I remember this from readers’ letters at the time.

    Raymond. The more I see of his work, the more convinced I am that the guy was a god.
