Here for the first time since it was serialised in the pages of Ranger is one of the finest adaptations of the classic Treasure Island, beautifully painted by John Millar Watt and retold in Robert Louis Stevenson's original language – making it one of the most faithful adaptations and well as one of the most visually stunning.
John Millar Watt was the creator of 'Pop', one of the most popular comic strips of the 1920s and 1930s. Published in the pages of the Daily Sketch and in a series of his own Pop Annuals between 1925 and 1950. The Scottish-born artist had previously worked in advertising and had exhibited at the Royal Academy. After retiring from the Pop strip in 1949, Watt concentrated on advertising and illustration work, to which he added comic strips in the mid-1950s. His richly painted artwork subsequently graced the pages of Princess, Look and Learn, Ranger and Once Upon a Time.
Treasure Island is published in US Letter saddle-stitch format, 44 pages colour with a stunning cover by John Millar Watt.
