D.R. & Quinch

Jeff Craig Detective

Art by Ian Kennedy. In semi-retirement now, but still providing covers for Commando comics. From Buster, dated 2nd May 1964.

Check here, for a feature about the man.

Marney the Fox

John Stokes provides gorgeous art for the 18th January, 1975 edition of Buster. I've included some larger frames for you to look at. I love the way JS uses various textures in his art from splattered ink to finger prints. I'd love to own one of these original pages.

Judge Dredd

Chris Weston's black and white art for the cover of 2000AD dated 9th July 2014. Insane detail (as usual!). This image 'borrowed' from the most excellent 2000AD Covers Uncovered site.

Droid Atlas

Yet another parody. This time care of the 16th September 1978 issue of 2000AD. Art by Brendan McCarthy.

The Unprofessionals

Ron Tiner illustrates this parody of the TV series, The Professionals . Oink, dated 1st to 14th November 1986.

The Case of the Galloping Major

The great Frank Hampson provides the illustrations for this text story from the Eagle annual number 5 (1956?). Whenever I look at these illustrations I always marvel at the detail in the carpet. Insane or what?

The Spinball Wars

Art by Ron Turner. Battle, dated 1st September 1979.

Dan Dare

Dave Gibbons draws Dan Dare for the May 5th 1979 issue of 2000AD. The strip went in a bit of a strange direction after the more traditional space adventures of earlier issues with DD becoming a kind of superhero. As far as I remember this storyline was never concluded.

A Day in the Life of Trans-Time

Brian Bolland illustrates a page from Fleshfile, a mini-booklet printed within the pages of 2000AD circa 1979. Not sure of the date as my copy's missing it's cover.

I think this idea's screaming out to be made into a movie. Something over-the-top in the same vein as Syfy's Sharknado.

Judge Dredd

Bold cover art by Ron Smith circa November 1990.
