Nine Glorious Pages From October’s A1 Annual

A1_page001

 

Some people read Dave Elliot and Garry Leach’s A1 anthologies when they came out. I wasn’t one of them I was reading Silver Surfer. The closest I came to A1 was The Sleeze Brothers. It was only when I was around 19 that I realised I was missing out and had to track them down in longboxes.

I doubt very much I’ll be making the same mistake with the Titan Comics revival version. Here’s a look at some of the pages and stories you’ll be getting in the A1 Annual, out in October. It will include work by Joe Simon, Jack Kirby, Al Williamson, Jim Steranko, Alan Moore, Michael T. Gilbert, Sandy Plunkett, Scott Hampton, Bill Sienkiewicz, Dave Johnson, Garry Leach, Stanley Lau, Toby Cypress, Dave Elliott, Barnaby Bagenda, Norman Felche, Alex Shiekman, Mark Kneece, Dominic Regan, Madeline Holly-Rosing, Emily Hu, Sakti Yuwono, Jessica Kholinne, Bambos Georgiou and more. 176 oversized pages, $23, get in there.
