Published in the same year as the Terra-Meks story in Ro-Busters.
Cover by Angus McKie

Didn't Angus share a studio with Dave Gibbons? Might be a bit of Ro-Busters in there as well.

Already spotted - see Page 11 of this thread. The original link to the image from Omni #1 is dead though so if someone wants to look into that...  :)

Thinking about that picture, I'm not sure which came first. Was it swiped or the swiper?

Any takers?

Is the artist for that painting Angus McKie?
I had thought it had been used in one of the TTA books, but on digging the books out, its not the same, but does share some similarities. (The TTA book is from '79, btw.)




TTA was famous for using images that had been around for a good few years previous, so unless it was commissioned directly for use in that issue of Omni, its kinda hard to date - well, without an artists name, etc..

My kids have this drawing book:




It's not all original work.  You can see where it gets some of its inspiration from.




I was amazed to see this "Space Robot"!




Having seen Mr H in the book, it was then pretty obvious what inspired "Space Warrior".  Just look at that helmet for a start!

Not a swipe, more a homage.  The cover to Leviathan is obviously inspired by the poster for the SS Normandie (has this appeared in the preceding 23 pages of this thread?)

 Dont know if this was just an Irish think, but I do remember this Chrisp packet knocking around in the 80's:

Captain Chrisp





maybe David for http://hiberniabook.blogspot.ie/ might have some insight?

Feck! My brother and I used to have a Captain Crisps poster on our bedroom wall.  His arch enemies were Hyprum and Krispos, if I remember rightly.

Also, you've just reminded me of how he used to tote packets of Captain Crisps crisps on his belt, presumably showing a picture of himself toting packets of Captain Crisps crisps on his belt, continuing into infinity.

That's called the Droste Effect, I think - after the nurse/nun on the Droste cocoa powder.

Which one of those is the Judge Death analogue?
