There’s still time to back a fantastic-looking book featuring the work of 2000AD and Marvel Comics artist Paul Davidson from Belfast-based publisher and original art sellers Bezerker – but not much!
COSMIC-70, running on Kickstarter, revisits some of Paul’s most popular characters from Moon Knight, Silver Surfer, and Conan the Barbarian, to Judge Dredd and everything in between.
This book is being offered in a standard edition and a Limited Remarked blank cover edition.
Newcastle-born artist Paul Davidson has spent the past 25 years working as a concept artist for video games and Illustrating books for publishers around the world. His comic book career began with the creation of “Dwarflords”, for Games Workshop’s Warhammer in the 1990s. After a few years of producing storyboards and concept art in the video games industry, Marvel lured him back into comics in 2008, drawing X-Men books, Moon Knight and Silver Surfer, to name a few.
With the opportunity to draw “Judge Dredd”, Paul also started contributing to 2000AD (in, weirdly, 2000…ad!)
