Coming Soon: The Man from Zodiac, by Glenn Dakin and Phil Elliott

Ace indie British comic creators Glenn Dakin and Phil Elliott will launch a crowdfunding campaign for a new collection, The Man from Zodiac, this week.

This time out, on offer is a collection of their wonderfully bizarre “Man from Cancer” stories that first appeared in Marvel UK’s STRIP magazine. There are also other strips that weren’t so widely seen, all freshly coloured by Phil.

Dan Abnett has written an introduction, there’s an interview with Glenn about creating Man from Zodiac/Cancer and Glenn also writes about his 30 years of working with “the man of Mystery” AKA, me,” Phil tells us. “Oh, and there will be other stuff available, including original sketches and pin-ups by some class artists!”

Glenn Dakin is a writer and cartoonist, specialising in fantasy and humour. His work includes Mr. Spock’s Little Book of Mindfulness, the Candle Man novels, his autobiographical strip, “Abe”, and, more recently, Sherlock Holmes’ Little Book of Wisdom (Or How To Deduce What On Earth Is Going On).

Artist Phil Elliott has run a number successful Kickstarter campaigns, and the resulting books have been an absolute delight. He’s been active in the comic book industry since the mid 1970s, launching and co-editing the Fast Fiction fanzine in the 1980s, where I introduced my bequiffed character, Gimbley. He was a regular contributor to the influential Escape magazine and his other work includes Illegal Alien and Bluebeard, written by James Robinson, and Lucifer with Eddie Campbell; writing Absent Friends for Paul Grist; Tupelo with Matt DeGennaro; The Real Ghostbusters for Marvel UK, and illustrating Glenn Dakin’s Greenhouse Warriors, Mr Night and The Rockpool Files.
