Black Bob with the missing panel!
UPDATE due to comments on this post The Dandy 7th June 1952 with Jack's drawing on the first page.
The Dandy 27th Feb 1960.
The Dandy 19th May 1979. Look at panel 5!!!
Its a real treat finding this...lovely brick work and how small and helpless the master Glenn looks.
As you can see there is a new panel in the reprint of 1979. Showing the master down the well. This version also has different text..more simpler than the 1960's. Also it is shown over the top of the drawing..which is a shame has some of the drawing is obscured.
Black Bob was first shown in The Weekly News before it was printed in The Dandy. A panel was taken out as the newspaper was larger than the Dandy...the panel missing didn't spoil the story.
I hope one day D.C Thomson will produce a complete Black Bob book from the original Weekly New all complete.
Jack Prout art deserves it.
