Rebellion Releases — 3 May 2023

Gosh Comics has announced a special fundraiser print in honour of the legendary artist Kevin O’Neill, who passed away last year.

From Gosh Comics:

Last November saw the passing of our friend and sometime collaborator Kevin O’Neill, a loss we’re still coming to terms with. 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 2000 AD. 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. The outpouring of love for the man and his work in the wake of his death was testament to this.

Gosh! is honored to have this unique opportunity to offer an A3, Indigo press, digital print 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, limited to 200 copies, with all profits going to Kevin’s estate.

You can now pre-order the print from our webstore for mail order or in-store collection.

And now, this week's releases...
