Poor Brian Bolland
Just about on track - he had done work for 2000AD and Dez Skinn's Hammer magazine by 1978 - but i really feel sorry for Brian Bolland.
Not only an artistic genius and easily one of the top British comic artists ever, but what comes across in his "Art Of Brian Bolland" and "Bolland Strips!" books is what a nice, genuine guy he is, that gets hurt and upset by folk who have effectivly stolen his original artwork, or plaguerised him so much it stops being homage and patently becomes ripoff.
And here's the latest example.
And here's Brian outside the blatent piece outside the Pompidou Centre.
His face says it all.
