Here is a collection of three classic stories by Jeffery Farnol and H. Rider Haggard, brought to life by one of the finest of all comic strip artists: Jesus Blasco.

Originally published in the pages of Look and Learn, 'Black Bartlemy's Treasure' and 'Martin Conisby's Revenge' (based on Martin Conisby's Vengeance) adapt two of Jeffery Farnol's most famous books – a tale of vengeance and death that begins with Conisby a galley slave on a Spanish ship. He escapes to a British ship and heads back to England to take his revenge on Sir Richard Brandon, the man responsible for his years of slavery, only to rescue and fall in love with Lady Joan, his enemy's daughter.

Thus begins a tale that follows Conisby's adventures on the high seas as he sails in search of Sir Richard aboard the ship of Adam Penfeather, who is looking for the treasure of pirate Black Bartlemy, left on an island with a treasure map hidden in a daggar the only clue.

The story (originally written as one epic book) continues through the pages of 'Martin Coniby's Revenge', where his discovery of Sir Richard's whereabouts leads him to rescue his enemy and takes him to an island where he is confronted by Lady Joan Brandon.

The third of our strips is another grueling tale of high adventure and vengeance as Thomas Wingfield sets off for the Indies, only to be wrecked at sea and rescued from certain death by his enemy. Escaping, Wingfield is washed up on the shores of a strange land and captured by its natives. He is saved from being sacrificed and taken to meet the emperor, Montezuma.

The adventure that follows sees Wingfield marry into the royal household and face the encroachment of Spanish invaders led by Cortez. All the time, Wingfield still burns with the desire to avenge the death of his mother and kill the man responsible.
