"Dr. Guy Bennett" by Frank Thorne

My recent acquisition is Frank Thorne's (1930 – 2021) newspaper comic strips for "Dr. Guy Bennett" from 1959. I bought these strips because I am fascinated with the ease with which he draws, especially faces. One feels that there is not any construction/architecture behind them. They are totally spontaneous.

Of course, later, Frank moved on to draw famous comics such as Flash Gordon, Jungle Jim, The Green Hornet, Tom Corbett Space Cadet, Tomahawk, Mighty Samson, Enemy Ace and he was best known for the Marvel Comics character Red Sonja.

But I still like his early work.
