Raw Combat Colin!

For a time back when I was drawing Combat Colin for Marvel UK in the 1980s I used to draw the strip on thin paper in pencil, then, using a lightbox, trace it in ink onto Bristol Board for the finished job. 

I'm holding onto my Combat Colin inked pages for future use (when I get around to publishing a collection of strips) so you won't see those up for sale, but I found one of the pencil stage pages last week and it's now up for auction on eBay if any of you are interested.

The auction ends on Sunday so if you wish to bid click on this link to visit the eBay site. Good luck!

I used to love this strip! Macho Man was a big favourite too. Love seeing the process pics, really interesting Lew!

Thanks Marc. They were good days, drawing strips for Marvel.

Yes, Marvel UK and Fleetway were happy to return the artwork on request to the artists after publication. Only natural after all, as we paid for the materials to produce it.
