Veda had a sort out today and unearthed a load my old drawings. This is a strip I half-heartedly attempted in either 2001 or 2002. I was reading lots of Raymond Chandler and Sin City collections at the time, I think it shows! These are my favourite panels from about half a dozen pages, cobbled together today in photoshop. It's interesting to look back and think 'actually, it didn't all suck!' but also to review it and see that I've progressed in a lot of ways too (particularly overall layout and panel design). Anyway, I had fun drawing this all those years ago, and I had a lot of fun today re-editing it.


  1. The middle and second last panels really stand up quite well. When I mentioned the idea of a Horror special later in the year, this makes me think maybe a Crime Noir one would be a good idea

  2. Gotta love a bit of noir really. This is ace. I think a writer would have fun playing with this page.

  3. Thanks Conor. Locustsofdeath? Did you hear that?
    Hee hee!

  4. I think that was the word!! ;)

    I like what you've got there - always fun to try different styles, being flexible on the art front can't be a bad thing!!
