The Italian Nemo (Enhanced Edition)

This May Bao Publishing is going to publish the Italian edition of Nemo: Heart of Ice, translated as Nemo: Cuore di Ghiaccio
"In order to enhance the pulpy/art nouveau/Verne novel feel of Nemo, our Italian edition will sport raised UV coating, to give a 3-D feel to the area that surrounds the image.", declared Michele Foschini, Bao's Chief Creative Officer. 

I think... it's a really classy Italian touch!

Marvelman vs Big Ben

Art by Chris Weston
Above you can admire a marvellous "Marvelman vs Big Ben" commission conceived and drawn by the amazing Chris Weston. Posted on this blog with the artist's permission. 

What's the difference between American and British super-heroes? The answer is: Alan Moore! I'm more of a Moore fan than a super-hero fan, to be honest. I like stories that have beginnings, middles and ends like Watchmen, rather than endless continuity where "something will happen but after a while everything will go back to the way it was before."
