(Continued from 1991)
The latest retelling of the story of "David" continues once more. This marked the 7th time the BOYS' LIFE series would cover this material. As before, the stories of "Solomon", "Jeroboam" and "Elijah" follow.
The trend of REUSED text and REDRAWN art continues. If you click "Open Link In New Window" for each pair, you can flip between them and compare.
January 1992 with November 1981
February 1992 with December 1981
March 1992 with January 1982
April 1992 with February 1982
May 1992 with March 1982
June 1992 with April 1982
July 1992 with May 1982 (this one was more different than most)
August 1992 with June 1982 (this was had entirely NEW art!)
"The Queen Of Sheba Visits King Solomon" (July 1982) was skipped this time.
September 1992 with August 1982 (NEW art)
"Rehoboam Causes A Revolt" (September 1982) was skipped this time.
October 1992 with October 1982 (REDRAWN art)
November 1992 with November 1982 (NEW art)
December 1992 with December 1982 (NEW art)
This makes me wonder if Frank Bolle's schedule may have gotten in the way of his doing entirely new art on all of these. He was doing a daily comic-strip at the same time. Given that Ernie Colon was doing more and more features for BOYS' LIFE around this time, Bolle may have been slowly cutting back on his BL work.
