I've been asked many times "What character or strip would you like to revive from Comics' Past?" And I could never decide. There are so many great characters in Comics Limbo. But I've finally boiled my choice down... to three... don't know if I will ever be able to do these, but I'd love to!
1. THE NERVS Specifically the grotesque Ken Reid version that ran in SMASH! in 1968/9. Imagine that kind of thing in colour! All the blood vessels, bile ducts, sinews... it would be lovely to draw.
2. GRIMLY FEENDISH Leo Baxendale's Gothic Creep of a Crook... oh, there is SO much I could do with him. If ONLY there was some way to get it going.
3. BRASSNECK I'm envisioning a kind of Steampunk, Heath Robinson Brassneck, lots of silly detail and cogs and levers and wires and steam... possibly set in 1964 the year of his debut... or better yet, 1890...
So there we are, my dream list.
Anyone up for it?!
