Rebuffed by beautiful Princess Lea again, Baron Von Blunt seethes with anger. Vowing to destroy Glaustark, the stage is set for conflict. In an extraordinary final splash panel, Kevin arrives at last. As usual, Stub and Kevin are confident. First, Kevin and his men face an arduous journey just to reach Von Blunt. Then, will they be strong enough to overcome the Baron?

One thought on “Princess Lea Pursued

  1. The 10/28/51 strip is notable, as you say. for that jaw-dropping final panel, with Collins evoking the lines of 19th century engravings to depict a horse bursting into the foreground. The blend of delicate and bold lines is masterful and painterly, and probably only looked good in the Chicago Tribune’s printing. The figure of Patch, at the right, has a modern crispness such as you’d see in advertising art of the 1950s. This panel is, I think, Collins’ finest moment as a comics artist.

    Also note that in this Tribune version, there’s no throwaway panel. In this microfilm record of the Reading, Pennsylvania Eagle (which had one of the best Sunday comics sections in the nation), you can see a version of the strip with the customary throwaway panel–it’s on page 73 of the paper… https://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=ZuSUVyMx-TgC&dat=19511028&printsec=frontpage&hl=en
