This special issue is devoted the the story of Bardon Art, one of the most revolutionary artists' agencies to emerge from the post-war boom in international illustration--and comics strips and comic art. With the help of Bardon's founder, Barry Coker, and access to hitherto unpublished art and testimony from many of the leading players, Diego Cordoba brings to life the story, including creators Matias Alonso, Luis Bermejo, Jose Ortiz, Jordi Longaron, and Jordi Penalva. Plus John Burns, Romero, Carlos Ezquerra, Toutain, Jim Lawrence, Jordi Franch, Jesus Blasco, and many more!

With a foreword by Dave Gibbons, a fascinating introduction to the genesis of Bardon in London and Barcelona, and profiles of Barry Coker and Jordi Macabich.

If many of these names ring a bell, that's because this is the agency that got these boys into American comics, most notably DC and the Warren magazines. Many worked on the best years of Vampirella.

But this is primarily a book about these artists' work in England, so very little here has been seen in the U.S. They produced both comic strips and illustrations for children's, western, adventure and sci-fi stories in the big British weeklies and annuals. That's what we are treated to here.

Truly fabulous artwork abounds, much of the art taken from scans of the original work.

Some nudity.
