Wow that's fantastic - thanks Richard S.

It crazy to think that given how young he was when he started at Marvel UK (I think it was?) there even earlier stuff out there. He's the UKs Jim Shooter!

Its also incredible how quickly his work came on even here. That image of Princess Projectra in issue 39 just looks so Dillon as we know him. Then Nick Fury and the Shield agents in issue 40 is utterly early Dillon as we've seen him published. Mind he might well have been close to starting, if not started at Marvel UK at this point?

4 years already?!   :'(

That's certainly a new (to me, and I'll bet, most others on here) piece.

Lovely stuff - thanks for posting.

A while back I came upon one of my old senior school workbooks, in which I'd listed Mick Austin and Steve Dillon as "my favourite artists"- and from those (1978!) spot illustrations it's easy to see why. He really did appear damn-near fully formed, didnt he? All bar the earliest are absolutely recognisably his work and considering he was- what, 16?- younger than my eldest- that is astonishing.

We really are worse off without him and I'm just glad that we got to see so much over the too-short time.
