Even an Android... Just One Page

This is the picture I did for Ade Brown's 'Just 1 Page' Horror-themed Comics exhibition displayed recently at Orbital Comics in London. Eagle-eyed readers will recognise the inspiration, a mash-up of Thomas/Buscema's Avengers classic 'Even an Android can cry' (seen HERE for example), together with the 'Injury to the Eye' motif beloved of 1950's EC Horror comics (see example HERE).

More Moore?

Mere moments before the imposing figure of Alan Moore strode around the corner near Pizza Express, this gent cycled up to the queue (waiting behind GOSH Comics for a Moore signing), and asked what the line was for...

Clearly some sort of witchcraft must have been involved. Good job he didn't stick around for those extra moments, there surely would have been some sort of clash-of-beards!

Green Lantern

Saw Green Lantern tonight, thought it wasn't bad, if a bit daft in places, and the 3D was a bit wonky. Here's a sketch I did on my phone during the adverts:

People I Know Twelve - Review

Review of 'People I Know' #Twelve
by Timothy Winchester

Now in Colour!
This issue, Tim explores his familiar themes of Love, Obsession and Betrayal in a Medieval world of Magic and Wizardry. Oh, I just worked out the inside covers are wizards! I am slow. Tim is a master of pacing, using deceptively simple-looking drawings in many clever ways, and utilising the icons and lexicon of comics subversively to great effect. Recommended. Buy this!

Sightings of Wallace Sendek

REVIEW of: Sightings of Wallace Sendek
Words: Douglas Noble
Art: Sean Azzopardi


Douglas Noble’s writing style is known for its ability to evoke mood, and that quality is put to good use in this haunting comic, relating the mysterious disappearance (reappearance?) of the titular rockstar, Wallace Sendek. Through a fractured timeline, Douglas and Sean have created a collage of vignettes, perhaps offering a glimpse into the background of the events that led to Sendek’s disappearance, through the sometimes-messianic reactions of his fans and others.

The gorgeous art by Mr Azzopardi lifts this to another plateau, his versatile skills displayed by presenting each mini-story drawn in a different style, contributing to the enigmatic presentation.

A great taster for these two stars of the UK comics scene. I recommend 'Complex' by Noble, and the 'Ed' and 'Necessary Monsters' collections by Azzopardi for some of their best individual work.
