Stickleback Cover

Back from my travels to be greeted by 2000AD Prog 1525, bearing my Stickleback cover and the last part of Mother London. Despite a few minor surprises at the interior repro, I'm relieved at how well it's turned out; aside from the fact that it must be a bugger to print, that last episode was done in such a rush that I've no idea what the heck I was drawing towards the end.

They've put a nice, subtle cyanotype-type tint on the cover image (which was done black & white like the interiors). At some point, I'll have to have a go at translating this technique into colour...

I'll sort out references for the last episode in the next day or so.

Quite simply my favourite 2000AD strip of recent years, and one of the best-ever covers. If you're ever in need of an ego-boost, mosey on over to the 2000adonline.com forum, and bask in the glowing praise. More. Now. (Please).

I really want to read this, but have no access to 2000AD...
Is there a collection in the works, by any chance?
