Mega City Book Club 8: ABC Warriors:The Black Hole


It's another pubcast as Julius Howe from the Inky Fingers podcast is my guest to go in depth on the artwork of the ABC Warriors' return to the prog in 1988. Recorded in a noisy London pub we focus on the stunning debut of Simon Bisley, and why SMS is the often overlooked half of a dramatic double act, plus Julius gives us his views on the various reproductions of the original art.

This story appears in the Mek Files volume 1, available from the 2000AD online store, as well as digitally for Apple, Android, and Windows 10 devices.
