More Jane art

After all that scanning of John M Burn's Jane art last week, I couldn't resist, and had to go and buy some original art... I bought this daily along with a Frank Robbins Johnny Hazard daily I'll get round to posting someday.

Original scan

Here's what I'm scanning... Takes a lot of work to get it looking good.


And some nice colour work from Look-In magazine from 1977.

JANE by John M Burns

Started scanning some 25 year old clippings of the Jane comic strip drawn by the splendid John M Burns. He's one of my favourite artists and I've got about a thousand of these daily strips cut from the Daily Mirror. The newsprint is starting to turn brown so I'm going to scan and clean up all of these before they disintergrate. These are the earliest episodes I've got, does anybody know when the strip started in 1985? The first one is labelled T96 and is quite early on I think.

Gotham Central

While looking for a Gotham Noir picture to post, I came across this unpublished cover for Gotham Central #36. No idea why it wasn't used.

Batman: Gotham Noir and Incognito: Bad Influences

Out tomorrow, the first book Ed Brubaker and I did together, Batman: Gotham Noir, and the latest, Incognito: Bad Influences.
