We like us some Brian Bolland. Clean, sharp lines. Realistic renditions. Attention to details.
You will remember Brian as a popular cover artist for Wonder Woman, the artist on the fantastic Alan Moore The Killing Joke book, and plenty of other cover artwork. But, before all that, Brian was cutting his chops in independent comics from the U.K., particularly Judge Dredd. A talent like this couldn’t stay in English publications only. Brian did some work in the 1980’s in U.S. independent comics. Some of his gems were backup stories. To wit, the following is a secondary story in an issue of Grimjack. Written by Jon Ostrander and Del Close, this whimsical horror story finds Brian trudging through Munden’s Bar, the intergalactic cesspool frequented by some of the baddest aliens on anyone’s Most Wanted list. Enjoy.
