About this deal

stemmed from a suggestion by Josh Palmano (owner of Gosh Comics in London, and also involved in publishing company Knockabout Comics) to collect all instances of Bolland's two strips and Steve Moore's "Zirk" story. Working in British comics publishing since the 1980s, his credits include editor of titles such as Doctor Who Magazine, Babylon 5 Magazine, and more.

Bolland's early work on Judge Dredd was much influenced by McMahon, a talented newcomer whose idiosyncratic style was fuelling the interest in the new character.Once a page had been found, the process of acquiring a scan could begin; this is a highly complex, delicate procedure, known in the business as shameless begging, and might involve selling the book's concept (which often worked), asking very nicely, or offering inducements. He checked with editor Len Wein to see if he could have the Joker do terrible harm to Barbara Gordon.

For DC's Vertigo imprint, Bolland has done covers for The Invisibles, Jack of Fables, and a number of one-shots and miniseries.She later gave up illustration and became a cook for a vegetarian restaurant, [119] although she has since assisted her husband with his work, acting as colourist, inker, co-artist and ghost. Bolland notes that while he tends not to reuse cover ideas, he does occasionally produce homages to his past covers. He adds that for artists like him that are well known for covers, editors will usually ask for pin-ups instead. Brian Bolland: The Apex Edition follows Rebellion’s successful Zenith Apex Edition, which collected Steve Yeowell’s stunning artwork from his and Grant Morrison’s superhero series. Many American collectors had significant presences online and were happy to show off the collections.

Grudgingly I drew the number one cover that made it onto the issue – but as a protest I reversed the letter N in my signature as a code to remind myself that my "artistic integrity" had been despoiled.

Asked to take over from Sean Hughes on the covers for volume two by editor Shelly Roeberg, Bolland found her to be an ideal editor, effusive with praise and specific in requirements.

From the 1970s to the present, Bolland has also produced one-off pieces of artwork for use as record (including one for The Drifters in 1975 [29]), paperback book (including the UK Titan editions of George R.

Back in 2021, when this art was previously auctioned, we understand Comic Link and Brian Bolland came to an agreement about the sale. My motivation for putting a book together usually comes from two questions: do I want this book to exist, and how annoyed would I be if somebody else does it instead of me?

A page from the Judge Dredd “ The Cursed Earth” story, drawn by Brian Bolland, subject of controversy when first published, and previously offered at auction in 2021, is again on sale through on ComicLink.

In 1986, Bolland was one of several artists who contributed pages to the anniversary issue Batman No. For Dark Horse Comics, Bolland has produced several diverse covers, including a couple for Michael Chabon's The Amazing Adventures of the Escapist at the behest of editor Diana Schutz. Likening the process to creating "a mini comic strip," Bolland says that "if any detail made any sense it had to be changed to something that didn't. I wrote it, in part, to allow myself the opportunity to draw details from the Batman comics I loved as a kid.
