Personal blog - and temporary home page until new website is finished - of writer, editor and graphic artist Christopher Mills

Thanks to my generous mother-in-law and her holiday largesse, I was able to order myself a copy of the Dagar The Invincible Archives Vol. 1, featuring stories by writer Don Glut and artist Jesse Santos. Should be here sometime next week.

This artwork originally graced the sixth issue of Gold Key Comics' Dagar the Invincible/Tales Of Swords & Sorcery, back in 1974, and Dark Horse Comics used it for the cover of their hardcover archive edition. Unfortunately, the Grand Comic Book Database doesn't identify the artist.

More than likely it's George Wilson, who did most of Gold Key's action/adventure covers at the time.
And it looks like Steve (Doc Savage) Holland is the model for Dagar!

It certainly looks like George Wilson's work.

Jesse Santos designed the cover for issue one and later it was painted by George Wilson adhering to that design. I'd reckon something similar went on here. I see a smidge of Santos in those faces.
