- Full Description
An eclectic and stylish collection of stories drawn by Rian Hughes, renowned illustrator and graphic designer, featuring his two collaborations with Eisner Award winner Grant Morrison. "Dan Dare" stars the iconic British character sci-fi character in a post-modern landscape he no longer understands. "Really and Truly" is a high-octane psychedelic road-trip torn from the pages of cult comic 2000AD. Hughes' clean graphic style comes to the fore in duotone for “The Science Service”, written by John Freeman, and finally Hughes explores an evocative noir palette for Raymond Chandler's "Goldfish," adapted by It's Superman author Tom DeHaven.
In addition to sketchbook pages, merchandise, and rare strips many never seen before, or out of print for over a decade, the book includes an introduction by comics guru Paul Gravett, who first published Hughes’ stylish art in his seminal magazine, Escape.
