Publisher and comics distributor GetMyComics has revealed plans for a SHIFT Winter Special will be released on 16th December 2021.
Crammed with great comic strips, including an all-new strip, “The Star-Drake of Dumnonia”, by veteran 2000AD comic artist Alan Langford; “Another Time and Place” by Hal Laren; and “Secret History” by Lyndon Webb and cover artist Lee Milner.
Better known now as an equestrian artist, a full member of the Society of Equestrian Artists specialising in Equestrian, Fantasy and Historical art, Alan Langford began his artistic career in 1979. Back then, he was working as a full time illustrator of topographical scenes in pen and ink, which were transferred on to copper plaques.
After three years, he went freelance, working through a Fleet Street artists agency, mainly illustrating comics, including 2000AD, Eagle and SuperNaturals.
Last year, he self-published The Secret of the Aesir, a beautiful self-contained graphic novel, melding hard SF with Norse myth.
