Keith Watson and Captain Condor

Keith Watson Captain Condor
Having left Eagle rather precipitately after the resignation of Frank Hampson, Keith found a job on a rival comic, Lion. Its space hero was Captain Condor, although this strip never had the care and attention that had been lavished on Dan Dare. But he, working by himself, and in black and white, Keith does some excellent artwork. Now, if it hadn't been for the eyebrows, who would you have thought this was?

And this too is impressive.

I am very grateful to the gentleman who sent me a series of Lions as a gift, so that I could produce this page - very many thanks. The snag is that I have lost your name, so if you read this then please mail me again so I can give you credit!
