And I’ve decided that today is British links day. That’s right, my paltry handful of links will all relate to the land of the Queen. So:
-Remember the time Modesty Blaise was almost drawn by Handsome Frank Hampson? Me neither! In fact I have two unread Modest Blaise books on my shelf. Is it a good strip? I may never know.
-Whoah, I think Warren Ellis knows what I’m talking about.
-It’s a profile of fans of the other Frank of British comics: Bellamy. Complete with some very nice, typically photo-realistic visuals.
-I love this “Stuff From Under the Stairs” Tumblr. Great British zines and comics magazines. It’s just the kind of stuff I like sifting through, offering a enough of a glimpse to feel substantial but random enough to feel manageable. Here’s a nice Hunt Emerson cover.
-And more buried 1980s: Some very handsome Paul Grist work for “girl’s comic”.
And that concludes this event. I hope to return to the kingdom soon.
