The Art of Ian Kennedy

Posted: March 19, 2019 in Books, Comics, Cool stuff, General

Due out in April from Heritage Comics in the UK, we have a book celebrating legendary artist Ian Kennedy. Titled “The Art of Ian Kennedy”, we will get 160 pages of his work in this Volume.

Nice.

Sad to hear that ex-Gillan guitarist Bernie Tormé has passed away. He died of pneumonia this weekend, sources say. Bernie was a huge part of the success that the band Gillan carved out for themselves (everywhere except for the States) in the early 1980s and he stayed active until quite recently. I have a real soft spot for Gillan and I guess I will revisit the old collection now like many others. Seen here is a German 1981 article from Bravo magazine (not sure about the exact issue but I still have it).

His spirit will never die.

Aero Modeller 982

UK publication Aero Modeller (issue) 982. I love this cover. An enthusiast named Chris Brainwood has built the craft that you see here (inspired by a classic cartoon) and you get to know how he did it in this issue. This model should be on sale from a major company if you ask me.

Just got back from the city after a couple of days of work (slept on a mattress on the bedroom floor in the old place). Everything is white as the snow falls rather violently right now. Visibility low. I guess I will have my work cut out for me tomorrow. Still, I will enjoy a day off and then it is three days in the city again.

Bought “Peppermint” on DVD and watched it today. This just might be the best revenge movie ever made. Jennifer Garner is excellent in this film and I hope they make a follow-up sooner rather that later. Enough said.

Good days

I have just ordered this, Tex Willer (issue) 651 out of Norway. They celebrate 70 years of Tex Willer (not in Norway, but in Italy) with this issue, giving it the full colour treatment.

Brilliant cover.
