Holt Bros In Colour

Continuing the countdown to the Massacre For Boys Action Special, I can now reveal that this issue will feature a remastered version of our Holt Bros pilot strip. Originally published in Judge Dredd Megazine 261 it's currently being coloured by Dee Cunniffe. We're sharing Dee with Rebellion (where he is working as a co-colourist with Len O'Grady on the John Smith and Colin MacNeil series Strange & Darke).

This is what the second Holt Bros page now looks like:

Not bad, eh?

Blackshirts of Exmoor In Colour

2012 isn't all about the Olymics, y'know.

We're on the home strait in terms of getting the Massacre For Boys Action Special ready to go to press. To that end, we welcome the multi-talented Owen Watts as colourist on Walking Wounded: Blackshirts of Exmoor.

Here's the first page, pencils/inks by Steve:

(You may recall I posted the black and white version back in July '11)

We're grateful to Owen for stepping in, and doing such a fine job to boot. There'll be one or two (or three or four) further new names added to the contributor list before we're done on this issue. MFB is very fortunate that the talent pool we have to draw on is only getting deeper...
