Friday Faves – Sarah Millman

Hello. My name is Sarah, and I hate designing covers. There. I said it. For me, they’re probably the hardest part of making a comic. How do you sum up your entire story – something you’ve poured your heart and soul into – in one image? It has to be something that pleases current readers…

The Friday Faves – Conor Boyle – v1.5!

“Pick two”, they said, “it’ll be easy”, they said. And I fell for it. Anyway, here we are. I started by trying to apply criteria to this (design versus story telling/ traditional versus digital/ simplicity versus chaos etc etc), but the goalposts kept moving so much that I’ve abandoned any sense of them and just…

The Friday Faves – Eamonn Clarke

British cover I just love the Captain Britain run by the two Alans, Moore and Davis, particularly their portrayal of Brian Braddock as well intentioned but not all that bright. He seemed to be a supporting character in the story, always getting caught up in events way above his pay grade as the Jasper’s Warp…

A 2000AD Easter Egg?

Spotted in issue 2 of Jimmy’s Bastards written by Garth Ennis. A double nod both to 2000AD’s editor and also its former base of operations Very fun comic by the way if a little similar to Lobo : Infanticide in its premise.

The Friday Faves – Dani Abram

Hello my name is Dani, long time listener first time caller. When Rich dead-armed me into doing this, several covers sprang immediately to mind. I thought this would be easy. ‘No problem!’ I chimed. ‘Piece O’ cake!’ WRONGO. Favourite British cover? Who the what now!? I can barely categorise British comics. The only really ‘British’…

The Friday Faves – Pete Wells

Wow, my favourite covers? Are you crazy? Okay then, but I will preface this with the obligatory “This list will change in 15 minutes” trope. Favourite British cover. This is the one that really could’ve been several hundred different images-all of which would’ve been Judge Dredd related of course. My heart says choose something from…

Friday Faves – Mick Cassidy

“Alright, without delving too deep into mind-melting procrastination, here are three absolute faves. (Ask me again in fifteen minutes, there’ll be three different ones.) US cover: FANTASTIC FOUR #236 by John Byrne and Terry Austin, with pretty much every Marvel character ever. Have to be honest, was never a huge FF fan but I loved…

The Friday Faves – Mike “The Hod” Hodder

It’s the return of the Friday Faves! This week….The Hod US Cover Detective Comics 241 – Sheldon Moldoff Now I like a grim and gritty Batman as much as the next man. Dark Knight. Year One. Killing Joke. Best Batman stories ever written, obviously. But as much as I like them, they’re not really the…

Off Topic – Protanopia

Check this out Saw the above and wanted to share. Yeeears ago back when I was an ECBT monkey we did a really interesting interview with PJ Holden who was talking about how he thought digital comics might go in the future. Nothing of this level but I loved his idea of how you’d have…
