POST FROM THE PAST: "WHERE TREASON DWELLS - DWELL I..!" (EH? WHAT'S HE ON ABOUT?)
Pencil tracing by Dom Regan, inking and lettering by Kid Robson
Many of you will have seen The FREEDOM COLLECTIVE one-shot mag from a small independent 'publisher' a goodly number of years back. There were quite a few people involved with the issue, but I believe the basic premise was based on a suggestion by a Glasgow artist (not the one alluded to below and named above), author, and well-known man about town.
I'm unsure whether the original pencil rough of the above image was prepared as a possible project or merely for the artist's own amusement, but it was traced from a copy of the cover of STRANGE TALES#135 - which I then inked, embellished, improved, as well as lettered, and which came out not too badly at all, in my humble estimation.
"KRUST" was later changed to "K.R.U.S.H.", but the above illustration is how it left my drawing board.
