RON EMBLETON CAPTAIN SCARLET END-CREDITS ARTWORK

I’ve taken a bit of a hiatus from watching my Gerry Anderson complete TV series collections. I have all of his (IMHO) best Supermarionation programs. Supercar, Fireball XL5, Stingray, Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons, and Joe 90. I really do need to get back to watching them.

While I prep myself for deep immersion into the Gerry Anderson world of Supermarionation again, please enjoy these cool end-credit illustrations from Captain Scarlet!

Here’s what the wiki says about the artist, Ron Embleton:

Ronald Sydney Embleton (6 October 1930 – 13 February 1988) was a British comics artist and illustrator whose work was much admired by fans and editors alike. David Ashford and Norman Wright, writing in Book and Magazine Collector (March 2002) note that “his work for such diverse periodicals as Express Weekly, TV Century 21, Princess, Boy’s World and Look and Learn have earned him the respect of every practitioner in the field and the gratitude of all of us who admire the art of the comic strip.”[1]

Here’s a quote about the artist from an online source:

Ron Embleton established himself as a superb comic and magazine illustrator in the 1960s. He is probably best known for the iconic images shown here - the superb end-credits artwork for the original Gerry Anderson ‘Captain Scarlet’ TV Series. Feast your eyes on these amazing illustrations.
