February Competition – Starblazing Original Art!

Over the last two weeks Graeme has posted up his work on his homage cover painting to the comic Starblazer and for this months competition we stay with that theme. Once again you can get your hands on some original art in the form of the A3 pencil art for the finished painting. Also we will throw in an A3 print of the final painted Starblazer cover and to complete your Starblazer memories we will also send you a selection from the original comic series.

So that's an original pencilled piece of art, a print of the cover and free comics to go with it all!

  1. The Starblazer revival starts here!!

    What is not to love? A graphic novella every month, some of Britain's white-hot up and coming talent (inside and out) plus new-fangled Internet gubbins (like these "web logs" I hear the kids talking about, but have never seen) and... social networking, plus whatever techno-bobbins Apple are flogging to everyone. With a hard-nosed media agent to exploit the intellectual property (a British Masters of Science Fiction has to be better than the American one).

    Add that the vital horde of classics they are sitting on with the back catalogue - I;d love to see everything by Alcatena in a lovely new trade paperback (no matter the quality of the stories) and being able to offer Grant Morrison stories he wrote, drew and even some he inked for other people has to be worth a few thousand sales to the rabid completists fans (plus the ones he drew weren't that shabby). I could even see a lovely coffee table book of the best of the covers in my crystal ball.

    Run that up the flagpost and see who salutes it!! Make it into a Fruit Pastille and see how can resist chewing it. No one that's who.

    Now someone go and make it happen. No dawdling.

  2. Hell,
    We liked the original comic so much that we got the license and turned it into a brand new mulit-award nominated Roleplaying Game! :)

  3. I'm far to busy to enter any competitions. Look at that lazy sod floating around doing nothing, I should float around in space, pff, no, some of us have to work you know, we can't all free load of the generous space programme budget too lazy to even notice space monsters, irresponsible lazy space men, I suppose I'll have to tidy up the mess when he gets all monstered, and cook him a good meal, probably a junkie, they get all the best housing you know, not like us working people. And the blooming post office was shut today.

    Do you know...If I did win, it might make me less angry, and I could put it into the Children1st Charity Auction at Hi Ex. Nobody wants an angry old lady around the little children do they?

  4. I'll trade you some Canadian Whiskey for it? And it won't be the stuff I serve my in-laws ... it will be the good stuff!

  5. Having travelled from Walsall in the West Midlands to the Observatory at Dundee expecting a major Starblazer retospective, I was more than a little surprised to just see a sprinkling of original art. It really would be good for the planet if you saved me any more 600 mile round trips and gave me some art of my own. From

  7. Starblazer, bone chilling Si Fi and it only costs a squid!

  8. I want to win it because you wouldn't have drawn it if I hadn't pestered you. But "Alex" should really win it for that great pun.
