All I want for Xmas is a John Ridgeway page from The Dead Man. Thank you, Santa!

For those who want to know the price £353 from eBay


Very nice indeed. The Dead Man is a stone cold classic. Always good to see pages from this pop.

I used to own the previous episode's last page to this. Wish I'd kept it now, but it went to a good cause.

From PROG 457 (Max Bubba aka The Ragnarok Job). A very large and detailed piece of work from the late great king Carlos Ezquerra. I love it!

Time Grenade!


Johnny Details:


Wulf Details:(I love the drool overlapping the lettering - I wonder who would have drawn that on; Carlos or Kid Robson?)


(sorry for the poor quality pictures, I don't have a great camera. The page is bright white, not the off yellow as it appears in the details above)

One more from king Carlos! Creepy punching Johnny shortly after Alpha's return!



It's great to see his pencils as well. Wondering if the inks were added digitally or if he scanned and printed another page to ink it?

Hi guys, just wondering if anyone might know how to contact Colin McNeil about buying a page from him? It’s a very recent page so I’m hoping he still has it.

Cheers

Now before you do anything rash I hope this isn't one of the three pages I've been stirring at thinking ...

"As soon as I shift some comics to raise funds I'll be contacting that there Colin MacNeil."

as there have been some simply glorious pages in the last three weeks. Good luck picking up what you are after I know a few folks here have contact with Colin so fingers crossed.

Cheers Colin. Yep,yep, yep. The art on Machine Law has been just stunning. Me jaw has dropped a couple of times. What a story. Wagner and MacNiel of unbelievable form. It’s just one specific page so fingers crossed 🤞

Carlos' Final cover drawn for 2000AD (the last printed cover was actually drawn in 2017).

It's a joke. I was joking.

Skullmo, that is an incredible piece. What a fantastic image, I even prefer this B&W to the colored cover. Congrats.

Those are great - especially the Execution of Duty cover... Awesome.

I have something new as well but I'm still getting my head around it.

“I know many stories and legends about the Nemesis, child, for I am very old and very wise.  But perhaps the most famous is the story of Olric’s Great Quest!”

Genius in every line, every panel a minor masterpiece; witness the insane geometry of Kevin O’Neill in the legendary tale of a simple varkherd named Olric… Nemesis the Warlock: The Sword Sinister, from the 1981 2000AD Sci-Fi Special. 

I’ve been mesmerised by this story since I first read it as a kid and it’s hard to believe that an original page from this now sits in front of me.  The final reveal of Nemesis - only hinted at before, with glimpses of his Blitzspear in Terror Tube and Killer Watt - was a huge event for me.  It would be a couple more months before Nemesis made his debut proper in the Prog but I was already hooked; Pat Mills’ writing combined with Kev O’Neill’s incredible art definitely made its mark on my still-forming brain.  There’s a lot of old-school 2000AD stories and art that I love but this is pretty much top of the heap.
