SUPERMAN VERSUS MIGHTY MOTH...
Art, logo & lettering by Kid Robson
Here's yet another unseen page
from the archives. This one's 25
years old and is scanned from a
photocopy rather than the original
art. (Most of the stuff in my files
is from photocopies, the originals
having been given away or mis-
placed over the years.) Conse-
quently, it's not quite as sharp or
as detailed as it otherwise would
be. This was intended for a fanzine
produced by the famous (and now
defunct) Glasgow comics shop A.K.A. (Also Known As), run
by JOHN McSHANE, the late PETE ROOT and BOB NAPIER,
three well-known and respected
luminaries in the Scottish comics
scene. (I think little STEVIE MONTGOMERY was also
involved at a later date.)
The cover was produced in a hurry between lettering assignments
for 2000 A.D. and other IPC publications, so it's not quite as "finished"
as I would've liked. (The floor and cape are deperately in need of some
shadows.) In the end, the issue this cover was intended to adorn was
never printed - simply because there wasn't enough material to fill it,
so it's languished in my files until now.
