Carlos Cruz's Crabbe Crusaders

It was before my time reading the comic, but I'm very fond of the eccentric Crabbe's Crusaders: gadget-master Professor Crabbe on his uncharted island sending his team of four orphan boys out on adventures in the giant crab-like Crabbocraft. I discovered this strip as reprints in the 1977 Frankie Stein Annual. Lovely art by Carlos Cruz.

If I could have one strip complete and collected in book form though, it would probably be Crabbe's Crusaders. Raven

The second example doesn't look like Cruz's work Peter. More like a product of the Solano Lopez studio perhaps?
