Weapon X

This just up on COMIC TWART:

I first read Weapon X round at my friend Alex Jamal's house. Marvel Comics Presents, issues... I don't know. Maybe from issue one onwards? I don't remember. What I do remember is having my tiny mind completely blown by Barry Windsor Smith's stunning, horrible, gorgeous artwork and - just as importantly - his spare, punchy, visceral writing (I probably wouldn't have used the word "visceral" back then. Then again, I might - pretentious child). For a while, I was fascinated by Windsor-Smith, how his art morphed from the early Kirby-stuff to the more delicate, art nouveau-inspired stuff. I even kind of got into Mucha cos of how much it reminded me of BWS.

I haven't thought about Weapon X and Barry Windsor-Smith much since the early 90s, so it was a real pleasure to go back to them for this Twart. If I have time, I might do a colour version of this.

If you're in the vicinity of Glasgow tomorrow, why not drop by and see me at the GLASGOW COMIC CON? I'll be stinking up the Forbidden Planet table from about two onwards, making with the sketches and whatnot. Come along and ask me to draw the Punisher (no particular reason - I've just got a yen to draw the big angry bugger)

(The above pic, by the way, is from my forthcoming issue of Richard Starkings' seminal ELEPHANTMEN. Not much more to report on this just yet, but it's going to be VERY COOL INDEED.)

Back in Time!

Hey you! I thought you might like to know that the new issue of Doctor Who Magazine is out, and it features ten pages of utterly mental comic strip from Jonathan Morris and, well, me. Here's a snibbet:

Colours by James Offredi. Oh man, he killed on this thing. Wait till you see it!

Buy it and make my old man proud!
