Phil Belbin

One of Australia's finest adventure comic illustrators, Phillip Bertram Johstone Belbin (1925-1993) produced a prolific output of work across K. G. Murray's stable of magazines and comics through the forties to the seventies. A quantity of Belbin's early work went unsigned (in particular paperback covers) and he was also known to use pseudonyms which included Humph, Fillini, Pittsburgh and Duke as well as his own name.

Read Belbin's Kath King - Diamonds of Death here.

Following illustrations and cartoons are from Man Junior magazine from 1950's - 1970's.
