The book will contain about 100 pieces of all new artwork from Henry, best known for his work on 2000AD, Vertigo and Dark Horse, along with text and commentary co-written by Cy Dethan, author of Cancertown and just-launched Slaughterman’s Creed.
“It’s Henry’s personal work and will take a look at the stories behind the art, Henry’s creative process, and, perhaps more scarily, explore the receiving equipment inside his head!” notes Cy.
“The book will be published by Markosia, and it’s their first art book, but when Harry Markos heard about that the book was looking for a new publisher he leapt at it, being a big fan of Henry’s work himself.”
Posting a couple of examples of Henry’s work on the Everything Comes Back to 2000AD blog, Rich Mcauliffe says ” the scans I’ve posted here are doing the peices and their insane levels of detail no justice whatsover so I’m really looking forward to checking out these previews and of course the finished book.”
