Mike Noble back on Fireball XL5
Network DVD, a company dedicated to classic British tv series who have made many old favourites available on disc, are giving fans of Fireball XL5 a unique opportunity to own an exclusive new art print by veteran comic artist Mike Noble.
Although now aged 79 and retired from comics, Mike has clearly lost none of his talent for producing dynamic artwork in striking colour, as can be seen by the image above. One of the greatest comic artists the UK has ever produced, Mike had a long and distinguished career in British comics, drawing strips such as The Lone Ranger for TV Comic, Robin of Sherwood for Look-In, and of course Fireball XL5 for TV Century 21.
The brand new print taken from Mike's artwork will be limited to just 25 copies, and will be sold on a first come, first served basis at £39.99 each. Each print will be individually numbered and is a one-time only deal. The offer starts from next Friday, July 17th 2009, and no pre-orders will be taken.
Network recently released Fireball XL5 The Complete Series Special Edition as a DVD boxed set (see box art below) and its bonus features included an item on the comic strips with contributions from Mike Noble, Bill Mevin, and Colin Page.
