Welcome to H. Rider Haggard's classic novel adapted in full colour by Mike Hubbard, originally serialised in the pages of Ranger and reprinted for the first time! This was a daring attempt to publish the novel in its original language, using Haggard's own words, although abridged, making it one of the most faithful of all adaptations.
Mike Hubbard was born in Ireland of English/Irish parents but grew up in England. He became a prolific illustrator in the 1930s, producing covers and illustrations for The Thriller, Detective Weekly, The Passing Show and Everybody's. Shortly after the war he was introduced to comics through a series of adaptations of the classics in Knockout. He also became the assistant to Norman Pett on the Daily Mirror's 'Jane', which he took over the drawing of between 1948 and 1959. Returning to comics he visualised the delightful 'Jane Bond, Secret Agent' as well as bringing a further series of classics – ranging from King Solomon's Mines to The Secret Garden – back to life.
King Solomon's Mines is published in US Letter saddle-stitch format, 44 pages colour with a stunning cover by Don Lawrence.
