The Argonauts part 1

"The Argonauts" is based on the Greek myth related in Argonautica by Apollonius of Rhodes, better known to the wider world as "Jason and the Argonauts" as it was under that title that Ray Harryhausen filmed the legend in 1963. Inspired by Jeremy's article on Clash of the Titans, which appeared here yesterday, I dug out the strip adaptation which originally appeared in Look and Learn in issues 416-425 (3 January to 7 March 1970), and present here the first episode. The artwork was by Italian artist Franco Caprioli, introduced above.
