That's Hannah-mazing illustration :)

A recent contribution from Colin MacNeil - so, so good.  This emerged around the time that Harvey popped his metal clogs and brought a tear to many an eye.

I love the weathering on that. Colin is just an astounding artist. We are so lucky to have him.

Yeah, Colin is an outstanding artist and seeing his less-is-more approach first-hand is just a joy.  Deceptively simple and I love it to bits.

Thanks, Wiggz - I know you'll love this latest one from Chris W as well - would look great side-by-side with your Blitzspears piece...  I'd love to see a one-off Nemesis story rendered in glorious B&W Weston-vision.

Wow, two incredible double splash pages in a row, nice! MacNeil's blocks of black and white create a powerful image and Weston's art is so creepy and detailed, both amazing. Congrats!

Thanks!  Chris W has done three pieces for the sketchbooks (Kano in 2013, Don Uggie in 2014 and now this) and they're all absolutely glorious.

Yes, it's still going.

A beautiful contribution from the awesome Rich Elson: Gene Dog resists being taken for walkies by Wrath & Bode.  There's no deadlines on any of these so they appear when they appear but when the four books are full it'll all be over (and we're closing on on that now).

Thanks, fellas - the whole thing is a continual joy, although looking back it's laughable that I thought I'd get all this done and dusted within a year or two.  Not sure how many pages are left overall.  One book is done once Glenn Fabry gets back to Belfast, another is (I think) being finished off by the current babysitter.  Not sure about the other two books but it's just a few pages in total I think.  Meanwhile...

Book Cook knocked it out of the park with his piece - as good a Venus Bluegenes as I've ever seen.
