Comic Creators work beyond Comics: David Roach, Chris Weston team up for Rebecca Closure EP cover

4000 and Out! By Rebecca ClosureJust out is a new EP by the immensely talented Rebecca Closure with a cover drawn by David Roach, coloured by Chris Weston, the album package designed by David’s daughter Emily.

The cover heroine is Rebecca herself (in typical stage gear of leather lederhosen and heels), fighting off the tentacled horde with the power of music, or something like that!

“It’s all very high concept,” says David, tongue in cheek we imagine!

“Yes – it’s something of a tribute to a certain comic,” he acknowledges.
