2019 Sci-Fi Special: A Tribute to Carlos Ezquerra

HOW GOOD IS SPECTOR??

So glad to hear John wants to keep writing him, though this means I shouldn't read the included script if I dont want to be spoiled?

At Enniskillen, Wagner suggested Colin MacNeil or Simon Coleby could join him on Spector, presumably because of their experience drawing Wagner strips with heroes who set off the metal detector at airports.

Which would you prefer?

MacNeil for me, but that would apply in just about any circumstance!  I'll lay off reading the script for the time being.

The rest of the special is great stuff - Wulf beats up Hipsters - hurrah!

Both of them are a good choices. If you want more gritty art, Coleby will do.

They're both great artists. I suppose it depends on their availability, but you have to think the idea of royalties going to the Ezquerra estate would be a big draw.

I would want to see the rest of it illustrated, and my preference is for Colin.

Is this special available for purchase from the online shop?  I’ve been looking on and off - but can’t find it?  If someone could post a link - that would be great!  I’m just after this issue - not the bundle.

Krakajac the specials are only available to be purchased on the day of the release, which is the 19th of June. Currently you can only buy the bundle or the items already released from the bundle. So it is case of having to wait.

The whole issue was a joy. Spector is a fab new creation. I kind of hope what with the scripts being published here that John begins a new story with a new artist. After all, he’s used to writing stories where a new issue is someone’s first. Kendall on something other than Deadworld was great too.

Yeah, mine showed up this morning, albeit with a chunk out of the back cover/back few pages, for some reason. Not sure why/how, given that it’s shipped in a stiff card envelope.

Stock answer for all circumstances:  Colin.  But it's not like Simon would be a disappointment!
