Not so much a monster at work as a musing at work about the horrible twists and turns about to beset one of my all time favourite comic characters at the hands of SONY executives...as if they hadnt fucked the mythos enough with Spiderman 3. I tried channeling the artistic powers of the mighty Breandan McCarthy with this one...and he's not even Dead!
This is very naughty of me but I just got this in my inbox from young Dave West, a coloured panel from issue 2 of Stephensons Robot that Dave is busy working his way through right now and its a beauty so I thought I would share the wealth!
I pencilled this over Christmas, I needed to put together another piece for my RADIATION series and once the essence of the art was there I was overtaken with a feeling bordering fear that I had actually summoned these things into existance (other than on the paper) and that for a brief moment they were about to shuffle in all of their horrific glory from the dark of the hall and into the front room.
My wife looked at it the following day and walked upstairs shaking her head saying "Your totally fucked!"
Whilst ransacking Shane Oakleys blog for my face book fanpage (which is dedicated to the great man) I came across some pencilled pieces for an abandoned project for Alan Moores Americas best comics line, it was called LIMBO and one of the main characters was a rather lovely lady in the Vampira vien called CREMATORIA, I fell in love with her on the spot and decided to do an EL INDIO remix to pay homage to the super massive talent of the dark lord of British comic art.
