Carlos Ezquerra

Sad news that Carlos Ezquerra has died at 70. He may have designed Dredd, but it’s Strontium Dog I associate with him.

3 is a magic number

Missed this first time round. It’s all rather sad (but good).

Xerx-Men

So Frank Miller managed to put out all five issues of Xerxes: The Fall of the House of Darius and the Rise of Alexander. It certainly read quite Miller-esque, and looked reasonably Miller-esque. The story itself was a little disjointed, … Continue reading

Showering Cowboy

It’s a sad day when it’s easier and cheaper to buy the Start Trek hardcover, than it is to buy the only issue I’m missing from the original series (No 7).

Give yourself a another basic shiny XXXVIIII

Best Land in the set, and looking good in my spirit deck.

What’s better than a Frank Cho picture? A picture by Frank Cho and Gerhard. Nice.

Bathomme: Dank Prince Charmling

Batman: The Dark Prince Charming There was a fair gap between book one and book two, but it wasn’t until I had both that I took the shrink warp off either of them. European comics can often be style over … Continue reading

The Swords of Heaving, Flowers off Hell

Forgot I was getting this. Seems like a strange paper choice for the painted art, but suspect it might not benefit from a glossy finish. I hope it’s good. EREKOSĂ‹? Update: I did enjoy this, and would have been fairly … Continue reading

Frank Quiltey

Went to see Frank Quitely at the Borders Book Festival today and got him to sign my All-Star Superman book. Nice.

X-Oh Manohwar

On to issue 13 of Matt Kindt’s X-O Manowar and the quality still hasn’t dropped on this series. Let’s see if this survives the DMG Entertainment purchase…

Had this for a long time and never realised how nice the art was (particularly in foil).

Dume Patrole

I have no interest in the current Doom Patrol, and less in any other Young Animal output, but I do like this picture. Grant Morrison will be turning in his grave.

Always liked this picture by Richard Clifton-Dey.

RIP Bob

Bit late in getting the news, but Bob Wakelin died 20/01/2018. His illustrations were a bright spot in the 80’s when most game art was utter bobbins (Oliver Frey being an exception). I have some signed prints of his art … Continue reading

Rick Bjaker

A rather fine 1/1 Joker bust by childhood hero Rick Baker. I would argue that it should be modelled in latex.

Moanstress 15 Variant

Need to try and get this when #15 is published. But probably not.

Xerxes

Frank Miller is threatening to release Xerxes: The Fall of the House of Darius and the Rise of Alexander at some point this year (or at least start it). I’m not sure Frank has it in him to complete Xerxes, … Continue reading
