11.Feb.2013 Flashback: Arken Sword no.21, 1987
I own one of 500 copies of this 80s UK zine, a cherished item. Bought it new back in the day.
It featured large B&W reproductions of some of my favorite artists’ inks. Picked it up to study their lines.
Growing up in Toronto I also took note of this issue as it contained a section about home town talent.
