Happy new year from Edmund Bagwell

It seems like every new year for a while now, when I’ve been asked for a tip on who to watch for the future, my answer has always been Edmund Bagwell.

Of the talented bunch in regular rotation at 2000AD these days, it’s Bagwell whose style I always think would transfer most successfully to the American market. He produces work with a similar commercial gloss as Michael Golden or Chris Sprouse, but with a taste for the far-out like Chris Weston or Brian Bolland, and can do a mean Jack Kirby pastiche, usually for his own amusement. Such is the case as the piece above: Shen I tapped him up for a preview of his upcoming next 2000AD strip “The Ten-Seconders,” written by Rob Williams, he sent this along instead, along with his congratulations to Robot 6 for reaching its fourth anniversary. It’s a companion piece to this illustration, posted at his blog back in December 2011. Bloomin’ glorious.
