Steranko writ Large

Jim Steranko's Nick Fury Agent of SHIELD: Artist's Edition

This morning I was wondering why I was drinking my coffee with an aching left arm and then I remembered lugging this HUMONGOUS book home from my friendly neighbourhood Orbital shop yesterday. I don't regret it one bit though, in fact I still can't quite take in just how awesome this book is. You can get an idea of the kind of scale we're talking here, by comparing it to the regular comic I've placed next to it. The pages inside are absolutely stunning, and you can see the way Jim Steranko developed his style from the first collaborations with Jack Kirby through to his solo outings, honing his considerable skills with each issue. Graphic!

Arctic Circle Radio


Now that is an interesting cover design. Plus, I happen to like Cameron Diaz, ever since I saw her in Vanilla Sky. As for Stephen King, here's a shot I took of him back in '83.

Jaime Sommers

From my cuttings file and the 1970s, a lovely (uncredited) portrait of Lindsay Wagner. I wish I'd written the date and name of the magazine on it in retrospect, though it's most likely from somewhere between 1976 and 1978, which is when The Bionic Woman aired. I'm loving that typestyle!
