2000AD ART – Rogue Trooper by Mike Collins

A piece from London Super Comic Con in 2013.

One of the real joys of the cons I visit is the thrill of one of your favourite artists being there and fingers crossed, getting them to do you a drawing.  Back in 2013 I picked this piece up at London super comic convention, drawn by Mike Collins.  I am a huge Rogue Trooper fan (and must show you my tattoo to prove it at some point).  

 Best known these days as a storyboard artist for TV (Doctor Who, Sherlock, Knightfall, Good Omens), Mike Collins has a thirty-year track record as a comic artist and writer, including producing a critically acclaimed adaptation of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. He has worked on all the major Marvel and DC characters, including Spider-Man, X-Men, Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. He also draws a series of graphic novels based on the adventures of Varg Veum, Gunnar Staalesen’s iconic Norwegian private eye.

Quite often you can just stand there and watch them draw which is so very cool.  I think this piece cost me £35 and took him quite some time.  Certainly wasn’t a quick scribble.
