I've never had a great passion for the DC/Marvel characters. Maybe it has to do with childhood nostalgia, before I read The Dark Knight Returns aged eighteen my only other exposure to US comics were a few Jack Kirby stories in an old British annual. Then there's Bizarro... for some reason he is the only superhero character I find interesting maybe because I can't fathom how a character than odd popped into creation in the first place but then goes on to inhabit the world of the DC characters all these years later.

How does this relate to Brendan? Well below is one of my favourite images from his issue of SOLO, (DC's oddest superhero rebooted into an Alan Bennett play) and the next few posts will feature some previously unseen artwork and sketches from Brendan's issue of SOLO. 


Brendan McCarthy is one of Britain's most talented comic book creators and designers. His unique and distinctive style has influenced a generation of artists and writers. He has produced some classic UK graphic novels, written and designed some ground-breaking TV series and worked on many successful Hollywood movies
