The complete first appearance and origin of the character Robert The Devil. Loosely based on the Medieval French legend. A Norman knight who discovers he is the son of Satan. His mother, despairing of heaven's aid in order to obtain a son, had asked for help from the devil.
Robert's satanic instincts propel him into a violent and sinful life, but he eventually overcomes them to achieve repentance. This is a fairly light-hearted take on the tale.
Exact publication details yet to be determined, probably from a weekly Fleetway / IPC comic of the 1970's. The opening page is especially fine.Click for larger image ...
