Chained to his Sword (1976)

As promised the other day in my post about the early work of some of our top comics creators, here are a few examples of Chained to his Sword. This series appeared in D.C. Thomson's  The Wizard in 1976, although I there had been an earlier series a few years before. The artwork is by the great Carlos Ezquerra, designer of Judge Dredd and Strontium Dog for 2000AD and Starlord

The first episode from The Wizard dated September 25th, 1976...




The episode from The Wizard dated November 13th, 1976...




The penultimate episode from The Wizard dated December 25th, 1976...



Tomorrow I'll be showing more 40 year old strips from another comics legend!

That was pretty cool. Thanks for sharing and wouldn't it be nice if the UK comics industry reprinted more old material out of the vaults?

I'm not sure there's a big enough market now for most classic material but I'd think reprints of strips by the big names who have a following, such as Carlos' , or Dave Gibbons, might find an audience.
