I've covered Signal comic before here and here (and John Freeman has provided an excellent overview here) but I've now been able to access the previously missing issues in my Signal collection, first up was issue 2 (here) and today we have issue 3 of this 'Eagle-lite' comic...




Cover art is by Don Harley...



More art by Norman Williams

Another Eagle alumnus, John Ryan, provides the art to 'Little Ruth - Sweet of Tooth'

Powerman #16 - Dave Gibbons & Brian Bolland

I've looked at Powerman before (here) trying to gather together all the images I can find of this rare Nigerian comic by Brian Bolland & Dave Gibbons. Some more images recently became available (thanks ebay!) so I've swiped them for posterity and will present them one issue at a time.

Today we have Powerman issue 16...

Powerman #10 - Brian Bolland, Dave Gibbons & Carlos Ezquerra?

I've looked at Powerman before (here) trying to gather together all the images I can find of this rare Nigerian comic by Brian Bolland & Dave Gibbons. Some more images recently became available (thanks ebay!) so I've swiped them for posterity and will present them one issue at a time.

ok, so I've heard that Carlos Ezquerra is upposed to have worked on this comic but I've never known on what strips, well whenI look at this strip I reckon this is it! The markings on the hill showing all the little lumps and bumps looks pretty reminiscent of his work and I reckon the men in the rest of the strip look like his work too. What do you think?
