The overdue John Hicklenton used to be one in every of Britain's best comedian e-book artists, recognized for the brutal, visceral draughtsmanship he delivered to the 2000AD/Judge Dredd titles and Nemesis the Warlock. His final picture novel is a parable of environmental devastation, depicting the quest of Mara, Warrior and Earth Goddess, as she seeks revenge opposed to the Longpig: a Satanic personification of capitalism, crimson in teeth and claw, whose fans, a legion of the damned, glance rather a lot like us. the realm of the Longpig is wealthy in killing fields and scenes of mass crucifixion that keep in mind Goya, Blake, and Bacon, and represents a real crossover of the image novel shape with effective paintings. John took his personal lifestyles with the aid of an assisted demise staff, following a heroic fight with a number of sclerosis. This book was drawn and written in foreknowledge of his forthcoming dying, and its perception into common topics of existence, loss of life, salvation, and damnation turns out to come back from a spot among worlds. Its phrases these of a prophet, its art transcending the comedian ebook shape, 100 Months will redefine the grownup image novel.
