The Black Hole

I've just finished my strip for the upcoming ABC Warriors Special issue of the Eagle Awards nominated fanzine Zarjaz.

The strip is another creative partnership with my good friend Rich Clements. I was really chuffed because Rich's script included a few panels with all the ABC warriors as they appeared in the Black Hole story line.

Pat Mills' original story, which marked the comics' debut of Simon Bisley, had a massive effect on me as a child - one of the major things that made me want to be a comic artist all those years ago!

I made the somewhat foolish decision to try to ape a little of the Biz's style - I can say now, that I didn't quite achieve the dynamism that he seemed to so effortlessly inject into his ABC Warriors pages - but I did learn some stuff as a result and it was a fun strip to do!

When the issue is out, I will share a bit more than this one panel... because I wouldn't want to spoil the surprise!

Really looking forward to seeing this, Kev. It's weird, following in the (artistic) footsteps of someone you've admired, isn't it? I found myself unable to attempt anything other than Ezquerra-vision when I had a bash at that Strontium Dog story!

Hi Kev, thought I'd commented on this already, sorry.

It's a great teaser, your style and the ABC Warriors are a perfect match, and this is is wonderfully arranged frame.
