    Hi, Guy,
    Still in the sleazy caff with the other cyberheads so am limited to what I can say and canآ´t sign in as myself. Iآ´d love a copy of the Dredd piece.
    Always nice to see Blake coming up for a new generation! Iآ´m still in Majorca, until the end of this month.
    Thanks, pard!
    As ever,
    Mike

    I'm very interested in the creative gestation that mashes various influences together and comes up with something new for a particular genre, like Elric... Conscious or not, it's fascinating.

    Excuse brevity. Still stuck in the internet caff!
    Given that our Image gallery has all those lovely scans from the Savoy book, I think I'll rest on my own laurels here and direct you to a page of my JTS site, where a number of Parker covers and drawings can be found:

    http://www.jacktrevorstory.co.uk/new_page_15.htm

    Several Zeniths here, some of which are also to be seen in the Savoy book, but I had the luxury of scanning in colour, so worth a second look.

    Great to see old Sexton Blake get a second wind as Seaton Begg in your oeuvre, Mike.

    Actually third wind in a way, as he had the dubious honour of being incarnated as "Victor Drago" in Fleetway's Tornado comic (1979).

    Excellent 4-page article on Blake in the latest issue of Judge Dredd: The Megazine, strangely enough. JTS is mentioned several times, I'm glad to say (and that obscure Moorcock cove too). Also a Bryan Talbot interview.

    Mike, would you like a copy of the Dredd mag? I'm pretty sure it is still on sale.

    It implies that "Victor Drago" was a necessary last-minute re-naming because Fleetway had sold the rights to Blake, but didn't realise it 'til the eleventh hour!

    Thanks for clearing that up, Mike (if it is indeed you!)! I plainly know less about Zenith than I should. :oops:

    But it makes me think... which is Elric?

    Mvh,
    Ant

    Aha!

    Cunningly hidden away on... page 2.

    Who would ever have thought to look for him there?

    Did Zenith have a arch-enemy, like Moriaty to Holmes, or Gaynor to Elric?

    If so, was he called Nadir?

    Ciao,

    started a topic Zenith The Albino strikes again

    Zenith The Albino strikes again

    Are there any images of Zenith the Albino (precursor, as it were, of that other topical Albino) in the Image Gallery?

    I have been looking but not found any, but the gallery is now so vast, one might wander its halls until the Heat Death Of The Universe and never get bored... but also not find the pics you could have sworn were in there somewhere!

    If not, I have some I can upload, old Eric Parker Sexton Blake covers and so on.

    Should there perhaps be a new album in Covers and Pages, Miscellaneous?
Working...
