The Last American, - back in print!

I had the privilege of Mick McMahon illustrating a couple of scripts of mine for Sonic the Comic back in the 1990s. Naturally, he did a wonderful job. I'm pleased to see that Rebellion will soon be reprinting The Last American that features Mick's fantastically stylish artwork. Here's the info...

Back in print after more than a decade, this tour de force by three of British comics' greatest talents is a chilling but prescient parable for our modern times.

After the Apocalypse, the last man alive is tasked with delivering Ultimate Victory. Twenty years after a global nuclear war destroyed the world, Captain Ulysses Pilgrim is woken from suspended animation by three military robot aides. Selected by his superiors to survive the initial onslaught, Pilgrim now has one last mission; to scour through post-holocaust U.S.A. in the search for other survivors.

Thanks for the heads up on this one Lew, although I am actively cutting back on comic related purchases as a big fan on Mick McMahons work, I think I will pick this up. I wasn't aware he worked on "Sonic" I must look for that one - Must have been a thrill seeing his work on your art..

It was his art from my script, Paul. (I wrote it, he drew it.) It was indeed a thrill, and a bit of an "I'm not worthy" moment. He drew at least two of my Sonic scripts, and he also drew lots of 'Decap Attack' episodes written by Nigel Kitching for Sonic the Comic too.
