The Themes from U.N.C.L.E.

Back in the 1960s, we had the spy craze - James Bond, Man from U.N.C.L.E. and Nick Fury Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. It's all covered in Alan McKenzie's latest entry on his blog, Marvel in the Silver Age, which is always worth a read.

U.N.C.L.E's Illya Kuryakin aka David McCallum with Jill Ireland in 1965.

Manko Models Catsuits & Rayguns

Last night at the perennially groovy Orbital Comics in London, Jason Atomic hosted a life-drawing class featuring Manko and a plethora of poses, which she modelled magnificently. If you missed it - ha! But if you want to come to the next one and you don't live a zillion miles away, it's already booked for February the 14th - and yes, that is VaVaValentines Day. Here are a few shots of the evening and some that we took in low-light after the class was over. Check the Orbital website here nearer the time for news about the next one. 

And here are some shots we took outside on the fire escape after the class. I have to state here that it's nigh on impossible to get a bad shot of Manko!
