4th November sees the launch of the hotly anticipated Johnny Red series from legendary Preacher creator Garth Ennis and artist extraordinaire Keith Burns (The Boys, Castles in the Sky).
The explosive new series features original adventures of the fighter ace who thrilled millions and rocketed to status as a classic British comic character in the pages of legendary combat comic Battle – and now he’s back!
Artist Keith Burns was at the recent lakes International Comic Art Festival and told us he was busy on Issue 6 of the mini series and enjoying every minute of it. His art work is truly astonishing – great storytelling couple with the eye for detail vital to make a war story convincing, with Garth , we’re told, often offering his expert eye on the World war Two hardware!
Here’s a sneak peek, including the variant cover by Carlos Ezquerra…
