Matt Seneca's insightful look at Brendan's one page story 'POP!' (link)

Saturday, 23 April 2011
Brendan: Two pages of the original sketches for "Mirkin The Mystic", the very British "Oscar Wilde meets Dr Strange" character created by myself and Peter Milligan in the 1980's. I've added a bit of digital jazz on the right hand image just to tart it up a bit. It was in a bit of a sorry state.

These are now with comic book art dealer Albert Moy and are available now.

A couple of recent McCarthy related links...

Over on Mark Cardwell's Bad Librarianship blog Brendan talking about Graffiti art...

"Based on one of my own images: Street Toads, by Ben and Raph of the IFC. The lettering next to the image says, "toad", but is sprayed in an almost abstract whirl of shapes. I think it looks really fantastic... The image is over 40 feet in length. These young guys are the new spraymasters: The new Banksys and Failes. It's happening now -- an urban comics and graffiti fusion"

Pitch drawing for Brendan's new Judge Dredd zombie story, 'DeaDredd'. Appearing in the May issue of the Judge Dredd Megazine

Brendan: "Here's an image of the cover of Sometime Stories number 2, incredibly rare, it turned up recently and I snapped a picture of it on my camera phone. I hadn't seen it for about 20 years... Brett Ewins now has the original safely locked up in a padded bag in super-secret laser-protected vault.

Although we actually wrote and drew two issues, the first one was the only one published. Then the publisher went out of business. Nothing of the second one was ever seen. Until now."
