… TVTA has a ‘Thing’ about comic book art!

Feast your goggles on amazing art candy by Bill Sienkiewicz, George Perez, Al Williamson, Mike Mignola, Neal Adams, Moebius, André Chéret, Brian Bolland, Alex Toth, Alex Roth, and the late Ron Smith.

I’d like to dedicate this post to the talented comic book artist Ron Smith, who passed away last week, aged 94. Ron worked on many British comic titles like Hotspur, The Wizard, The Topper, The Dandy, The Beezer, The Victor, and Warlord, but he will always be most famously remembered for his prolific work on Judge Dredd. The last three covers are by Ron Smith.

  1. So much to enjoy here. I recognise that Batman ’89 cover from the Commodore 64 version of the (incredibly difficult) game – it was used for the loading screen. Now I know where it came from!

  2. Some great comic book covers there, my faves are Daredevil and the Incredible Hulk! I have that Batman movie adaptation somewhere as well, nice cover for that one too. As I remember it was quite a faithful take on the movie. Great to see some Phantom as well, always nice to see these old classic heroes 🙂
