Speaking of the covers - did I read somewhere that the cover to the Titan Book III actually pre-dates Biz's work on the ABC Warriors?  Pat Mills saw that picture wot Simon had done and wrote the Black Hole off of that (or at least bunged in Craig and Terri's son)?

I don't think it was the cover of book 3, but it may have been the following image Bisley did for a Music Album sleeve 87 that convinced Pat Mills he might be good for the A.B.C's

A little bit of thread drift here, but related. Years ago I picked up a copy of a music magazine called RAW, Rock Action Worldwide. It had a fantastic cover by Bisley. I don't think I've ever seen anyone post it here, though now I've said that I'm sure someone will provide a relevant link. However, rather than scan my copy I've just had a quick google and found it on someone's blog with a number of other early Bisley pieces I've never seen before:

He paints a good Kerry King, unsurprisingly.

All fantastic stuff.

Who knows, maybe 2020 is the year we get his Joe Pineapples series...!

I thought it happened already! A false memory, I see now
