Death's Head - Iron Man #126 Homage Cover

Here's a new Death's Head pic from yours truly, yes? It's a homage to John Romita Jr. and Bob Layton's iconic cover to Iron Man issue 126 (one of my favourite covers of all-time!). I had the idea to do this years ago, so have finally got round to doing it. Hope you like it, yes?

Artwork by Simon Williams, after
John Romita Jr. and Bob Layton.

See, here's the Thing...

Here's the Thing how he originally looked in the first couple of issues of the Fantastic Four, before he evolved into the Blue-eyed idol of millions we know and love today!

Happy birthday BEANO!

This week marks the 80th birthday of Britains (maybe the Worlds?) longest running comic, the Beano! First published in 1938 by D.C. Thomson and co., the Beano has entertained readers for generations... with their line of classic characters including the Bash Street Kids, Roger the Dodger, Minnie the Minx and of course, Dennis the Menace and Gnasher! These characters still frequent the pages of the Beano, entertaining today's readers as they have done for decades. I've been a long-time fan of the Beano (and a card carrying member of the Dennis the Menace fan-club since 1981!), and treasure the memories of those classic comics, especially at Christmas time when I would get the Beano Book every year under the tree.

So a very happy birthday to the Beano... here's to another 80 years of fun, mirth and laughter!
