I hope to add biographical data and perhaps an interview or article on Mr. Garrido's life and career in the near future. Until then, just for fun, I've included a photograph below of Mr. Garrido's only known surviving 3 Investigators Crimebusters painting paired up with an original T3I Kane painting:
To the left, Harry Kane's original 1971 cover painting for #16 "Nervous Lion", formerly part of my T3I collection, now residing in a private collection. To the right, Hector Garrido's original 1989 cover painting for 3 Investigators Crimebusters #1 "Hot Wheels". I thought the Kane paintings were large but was amazed to find that the Crimebusters painting was even larger, especially considering the small dimensions of the Crimebusters books!
