Back in 2013 (blimey, didn't realise it was that long ago) I commissioned the much missed Nigel Dobbyn for an Illo of Kid Knee.

Nigel was an absolute gent throughout the process and once the final work was complete -- all digital remember -- Nigel sent me a couple of different resolution copies as well as a fantastic hi res print that he made sure showed his art off to its full glory.

Last time I saw Nigel we were chatting and he just casually told me that he'd deleted the files to the commission once completed. I was aghast but he laughed it off and said as far as he was concerned it was the best way to make sure that the single print he did for me was as close as possible to an original page.

His reasoning was that he viewed the piece as work for hire. He completed his part and passed the work to me as the owner to do as I wished.

Another view of this is the wide variety of covers commissioned for Zarjaz. As I'm sure I've bored you all before Zarjaz is a not for profit zine, so I can in no way afford to commission the glorious works on the cover at market rate, but I offer the droids a gratuity to cover oil and bribes for Mek-Quake to look the other way.

This has resulted in some of the most astounding work to grace a fanzine but the point is that all I'm asking these artist for is first use. What they do with the work afterwards is their business.

I've had this on my radar since DTT mentioned it - Rachael is a real talent - it was a treat to have one of her earliest strips in FQ.

Out of curiosity - do the pages in the book say that these are commissions done for private sale? Also, did the folk putting the book together get asked if it was okay to have a piece of art that you commissioned and paid for included?

For what it's worth - I don't think any of the squaxx who made the original commission would say no to being in a project meant to bring a few galactic groats to the artists family,  but it would be interesting to know.

I doubt the artists of the strips would be allowed to make their own collections of strips by Rebellion featuring their work, so what is different here? I see a credit to Rebellion, so presumably this book was done with the copyright holder of the character.

I'd also like other Squaxx out there who a reading something we don't regularly shout about to post about the comics.

Accent UK is a good shout - they have been around for a long time and know their business.
(works laptop won't let me visit the site)

The Denton brothers self publish Massacre: For Boys https://www.comicsy.co.uk/massacreforboys/ and I think many of their titles are still available via comicsy, however they are remastering the older strips into a more modern look (relettering and new colour on some strips) with a view to releasing a trade. The brothers best work is the Walking wounded - which is WWII era war strips with a supernatural slant.

Hi Rogue - for some reason this is not selectable on my laptop or my phone.

If the KS for V2 has just completed I might need to wait a little for it to be available again whilst the KS completes.

Good shout though. That's not something I've seem before.

Okay - if we can't have Henry or Jake -- who would you want to see take a swing at this?

My first thought -- SK Moore. The art has a similar 'density' but a very different look.

Who would you pick and why?
