Drake in Fox Comics

The editors of Fox Comics printed quite a few of my Drake Ullingsworth stories in the 1980s. Here are some selected pages, as printed, from the stories “Drake and His Dog Meet The Mariner Man” and “New Savagery In Jaystown”. They were serialised to some extent, long stories broken up into chapters. Later, I submitted…

Fox Comics gallery

I made a new page to display my collection of Fox Comics. This was an Australian comics venture, edited by David Vodicka who was based in Melbourne, with his friends and co-editors Phil Bentley and David Bird. They did it through the mid-1980s up until the early 1990s. I think Fox (co-edited by Vodicka with…

Henrietta, The Pirate of Love

Here’s Henrietta, The Pirate of Love in full colour. This is a 36-page story I wrote and drew between 1992 and 1995. It has never been published or seen anywhere before. The original artwork is A3 size and I’m providing quite large scans – each file is about 6-7 MB apiece. Please note the story…

New Illegal Batman Serial!

Illegal Batman in “The Forgtten Batman” Book 1 of 3 My first new Illegal Batman story since 2016’s The Man Behind The Curtain. The projected story is going to be quite long, and I anticipate two other books after this one. A strange time for an Illegal Batman who finds himself somehow infected by a…

The Factory of Death

Here you may view selected pages from “The Factory of Death”, a mini-comic from 1984. The script and idea for this slice of black humour came from Gary J. Brady, fellow Liverpudlian; we were both working for the Rescue Archaeology Unit at the University of Liverpool at the time, on one of the Government’s job…

Fast Fiction flyers and small ads

Here we have artworks and paste-ups for some flyers and small ads I put together, to help publicise the Fast Fiction distribution service for small press comics. I suppose these date from around 1986 to 1988. One would tend to do the lettering with a computer nowadays, but at that time I didn’t have access…

Vladimir The Medico in Anarchic Hospital Tales Vladimir The Medico is summoned to America as a visiting dignitary. In the large and complex Fortran Hospital, he delivers a lecture reminiscing about his early struggles in his homeland of Prague. At first, he is superficially impressed by the apparent freedom and opportunities in the “harmonious states…

Gag #2 colour sketch

Gag #2 was published in July 1987 by Harrier Comics. Editor Phil Elliott sent me this colour sketch proposal for my cover drawing. The cover as printed is seen in the small image copied from the Grand Comics Database (GCD).

Primitif and Feroce

This is an additional colour image produced for the Primitif In The Land of the Dead story. This may have been used when I prepared a one-off “artist’s book” edition of the story, and needed a cover image for it. But it wasn’t much of an artist’s book, to be honest – just colour xeroxes…
