Dave Gibbons' pre-2000 AD work
« on: 16 February, 2010, 11:41:19 PM »
Wow, look at me - two posts in a year! Blimey!

Am hoping someone can give me a little image help.

I'm on the hunt for images of Dave Gibbons' pre-2000 AD work...

I've drawn a blank so far - particularly on images from Powerman (Gibbons ones, not the ones Brian Bolland has posted on his website) and Hotspur - so wondered if anyone had original copies or original artwork they wouldn't mind scanning?

Cheers

Best of luck with that, MM! I recently tried (for no other reason than boredom) to track down online examples of Dave's pre-Tooth stuff with little success. I couldn't find anything on the DC Thompson stuff that predates Powerman.

I dunno if you've already seen this, but I did find this:



... as part of this CBR piece.

Here's one I've only just turned up for you:

A job for Marvel dating from 1975!

Hope that helps ...

Cheers

I know. Kinda hoping someone will have the first page of his Iron Legion story from issue one of DWM, which I remembered really vividly from when I was a kid.

I'll confess to being slightly gob-smacked by that Marvel job -- there's barely enough of Gibbons' style in there to be recognisable, but there's a credit right there at the top of page one, and the lettering is unquestionably Dave's.

Cheers!

Just chucked in here as an oddity:

How harsh is that ... to be a a really good artist but not be THAT Dave Gibbons!

I have the two Wagner/Mills/ Gibbons collections. Don't have time to scan them though.

One that he drew was for Wizard from DC thompson, I think it was called The Shark Men somewhere around 1975, I have them, but I dont think Illbe able to dig them out in time.

If people are Googling "DC Thomson" they would do well to use the correct spelling.

I missed out on being able to help with the Captain Britain scanning Panini were doing (by one issue!!) but can help you here as I have quite a lot of the early issues just minus the transfers (OK they are stuck all over the inside covers, as they were meant to be) ;)

Do you just want the scan or I can send it somewhere if required?

While digging them out I found Blake's Seven #1 and 17!! Ian Kennedy and Phil Gascoine drawn stories, respectively. Happy days.
if I went 'round saying I was an Emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!

Just for the record I also have this, which has a Freefall Warriors story in it (not the first one though, seems to be an original standalone sequel):

There is some lovely stuff in those specials, I have these too (plenty of droids on day release there):

Have you tried Rufus, BTW, MM? He's no longer active here, but you can still reach him through Facebook ...

Cheers!

He's done some seriously nice digital matte paintings though!

Not the greatest of scans.
