Illustrators_Special

Fresh of the printers in the UK, the latest edition of Illustrators deals with the Warren publications (and Spanish artists in general). Loads of Vampirella etc. This is very very cool.

Get it here.

Sherlock Holmes

Sherlockholmes_1

Just read an excellent comic book adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle´s first Sherlock Holmes novel “A Study In Scarlet” (“En studie i rött” here), published by Apart 2014. Updated by Ian Edginton with art by I. N. J. Culbard, this was first published elsewhere in 2010. 130 pages in full colour. I have to say that I enjoyed this a lot.

Well done.

Hessa11

Well I mentioned the Hessa comic yesterday on this blog and here is another (priceless) cover. Looks like she had business over in Scotland in this adventure, as showcased on this cover. Man I want to read this one (Hessa issue 11) bad.

Could somebody out there please republish this in English?

Hessa

Back in the 1970s, when I was knee deep in war comics depicting WWII from the point of view of the Allies, Hessa was published in countries like Italy and Spain. Written by Ennio Missaglia and with art by Giovanni De Stefano and Nevio Zeccara, it was published in 46 or 47 books, depending on what source you believe. Hessa fought for the SS Sex Sonder Sturmtruppen, so the angle would probably have surprised the hell out of me if somebody had imported it over here back in the day. Of course nobody did, which is a shame. Not sure if this can even be reprinted now.

Is he going to say it? Yes. The GG (Guy Gene) approves.

FootrotFlats

Sad to hear that Footrot Flats creator Murray Ball has passed away. Footrot Flats was published between 1976 and 1994 and saw considerable success on the global market. The cartoonist lived in New Zealand.

Gone but not forgotten.
