Sam Slade Strip in Zarjaz
Mr Paul Thompson and I have just got a strip in Zarjaz comic due out soon. Titled 'The Best Man' it's our homage to Robohunter, the Sam Slade strip which originally appeared in 2000ad comic. Make sure you get a copy.
Sam Slade was a hero of mine during the 80's when Robohunter was a rgeular in 2000ad. I loved Gibson's art style and inking. The stories were great as well, with humour and action in equal message coupled with his group of pretty useless robot and infant human sidekicks.
Some of the inital sketches will appear on my Deviantart page over the next few days. Here's Sam and here's Hoagy.
