Gosh! Comics offers limited edition Kevin O’Neill print featuring many of his best-loved co-creations

London’s Gosh! Comics has just released a terrific limited edition print in memory of 2000AD artist Kevin O’Neill, who passed last year, with all profits going to Kevin’s Estate.

“Last November saw the passing of our friend and sometime collaborator Kevin O’Neill, a loss we’re still coming to terms with,” say the team. “As a small act of remembrance, and with all profits going to Kevin’s Estate, it’s our privilege to be able to offer this A3 print, limited to an edition of just 200 copies.”

Working closely with Pat Mills for many years, Kevin was instrumental in the birth of 2000AD. He and Pat created the ABC Warriors and Nemesis the Warlock, and later developed the leather-clad, ultra-violent superhero cop Marshal Law. Then, in 1999, Kevin embarked on what was to prove a 20 year long project: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, with fellow UK comics legend Alan Moore.

“Kevin was admired among the international comics community, a truly unique voice in the field whose work inspired readers and creators alike,” note Gosh! “The outpouring of love for the man and his work in the wake of his death was testament to this.”

The A3 Indigo press, digital prints are printed on 175gsm Colourplan paper, featuring many of Kevin O’Neill’s best known creations.

“Kevin originally produced the piece to illustrate an online interview with the Comics Journal, but it was very unlikely to ever see print due to rights issues. Our most sincere thanks to Pat, Alan and the good people at Rebellion, who have given us kind permission to print this edition.”

The print is on sale now, price £40, and you can order one on the Gosh! website for mail-order or collection – but you’d better hurry!
