Hell, I’d love to see […]

Alter Ego #65 February 2007 (magazine review).

With a cover featuring the work of comicbook artist Nick Cardy, it’s hardly surprising the main interview is with him. This issue of ‘Alter Ego’ predates ‘The Art Of Nick Cardy’ book they published and is part of the source of material for that book in its original form. From there, another perspective look from […]

The Art Of Painted Comics by Christopher Lawrence (book review).
