The Horned God
Tried to put a decent bit of work in this week after my last half-assed effort.
Here be Slåine, The Horned God. I remember when this series was running in 2000AD back in the day, and myself and Thompson were utterly blown away by Simon Bisley's incredible artwork. Is there a better one-two-three punch in the history of comics art than Bisley's work on ABC Warriors, Slåine and Judgement on Gotham?
At the end of the Slåine storyline 2000AD brought out a lovely hardback collection, which Thompson bought. He agreed to sell me his issues where the story appeared originally since he now had the collection, but when he brought them over to me he'd torn all the Bisley covers off them as he reckoned that that wasn't part of the deal.
Still, not as bad as that time he sold me 4 sheets of bristol board for ten pounds...
