Marvelman Ownership issues resurface

Steve Holland has reported over on Bear Alley on an interview by Alan Moore questioning the original relaunch of Marvelman in the 1980s.

Steve’s news item outlines the current debacle very well, so go and have a look for yourselves:

The founder of downthetubes, John works as a comics editor, writer, as Creative Consultant on the Dan Dare audio adventures for B7 Media, and on promotional work for the Lakes International Comic Art Festival. Working in British comics publishing for over 30 years, his credits include editor of titles such as Doctor Who Magazine, Star Trek Magazine and Babylon 5 Magazine. He also edited the comics anthology STRIP Magazine and edited several audio comics for ROK Comics. He has also edited several comic collections, including volumes of “Charley’s War and “Dan Dare”. He’s the writer of “Crucible”, a creator-owned project with 2000AD artist Smuzz, published on Tapastic; and “Death Duty” and “Skow Dogs” with Dave Hailwood for digital comic 100% Biodegradable.

  1. Lovely link and post – one day, one day I’ll be able to read the whole thing, including the finished Gaiman books. But I fear I may be old and grey before then!


  2. Hopefully there will be a resolution that will see the whole strip reprinted at some point!
