An appreciation of British comics.
brilliant artist loved his painted Hammer covers for Dez Skinn
I love Brian Lewis art...he did some great stuff for Thomson's girl comics, too. Great artist.
Rob Moran? Did you do a Johnny Red strip for a Battle annual/Summer Special(?) back in the day? I also remember an ABC Warriors pin-up in a 2000AD annual? And another complete strip for 2000AD (an annual?). What was it? Dan Dare?
As for Brian Lewis: I think some of his best work was the Hammer adaptations. Just noticed a House of Hammer piece on Dez Skinn's site: http://dezskinn.com/Warner-Williams/#HammerQuality Comics released a compilation of some of them. It's probably going for next to nothing now:http://britishcomicart.blogspot.com/2009/08/reptile.htmlhttp://hairygreeneyeball.blogspot.com/2009/07/reptile.htmlBL did an adaptation of Moon Zero Two: a very campy sci-fi film (by Hammer) which is a personal favourite of mine.
I loved Brian's artwork on this strip and was also a huge fan even as a little kid due to his work in House of Hammer mag.
I didn't really know much about him until the 80s when Quality Comics published a compilation of his Hammer work. I loved his linework.
