Rebellion Releases — 18 May 2022

A gorgeous showcase of the work of one of comics’ greatest artists, Carlos Ezquerra, is out now.

The Art of Carlos Ezquerra give long-time fans and new readers alike the chance to enjoy some of the highlights of the legacy of this comics titan.

An often unsung titan of the industry, Ezquerra’s influence has been as broad as his artwork was inimitable. Co-creator of legendary character Judge Dredd and future mutant bounty hunter series Strontium Dog, as well as the artist behind so many iconic moments, when he passed away unexpectedly in 2018, comics was robbed of one of its most vibrant, dynamic and powerful talents, yet his legacy is almost unparalleled in the industry.

The Art of Carlos Ezquerra is an 240-page hardcover collection spanning half a century of his comic work, beginning with samples from his early art on romance titles as Valentine and Mirabelle. Alongside an extensive interview with the master himself, it will also include never-before-reprinted short war comics from the groundbreaking 1970s war comic, Battle, before showcasing his sumptuous colour work on Strontium Dog, and culminating with a selection of his 2000 AD work and Judge Dredd.

And now, this week's releases...
