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…

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…

Gag back cover

Following on from previous post’s example of hand-separation, here’s another one from 1988. This is the back cover for an issue of Gag!, a comic book anthology edited by Phil Elliott and published by Harrier Comics. It featured work from many of the Fast Fiction artists, and included some reprints of old favourite stories which…

Dennis Dewprat

Here you can download a scan of “The Transfiguration of Dennis Dewprat”. This was printed as the back cover to The Big Lift #3, edited by Tom Tiffin, in 1988. Tom was able to get proper litho printing for his A4 books (even though he wasn’t averse to small-run photocopies too). I tried to take…
