Black & Blue

Just to show the process of these early production pieces, here's one of Brett's covers shown in two parts. Above: With the black film overlay attached and Below: Just the hand-painted blue-line board. 2000AD Prog #484 - August 1986. Art: Brett Ewins. Colour: Tom Frame (Most likely). 


  1. Hi, Steve ... I'm almost certain that the hand-painted colour for this cover was done by the late, great Tom Frame. Certainly, Tom coloured the vast majority of the 2000AD newsprint covers (and centrefolds) and this one doesn't look like any exception.

  2. I think you're right. These covers were a bit before my time, but I had heard that Tom used to do colouring as well as Gina Hart. Tom was our main letterer when I was working there. Lovely guy. We all miss him a lot.
