An eclectic and stylish collection of comics from Rian Hughes, renowned illustrator and designer in a luxury embossed hardcover. All the stories here have been recoloured or relettered to show them at their best. Long before he discovered the Apple Mac, Hughes was collaborating with Eisner Award-winner Grant Morrison on the classic British character Dan Dare, producing a post-modern classic which sets an ageing, retired Dare against a modern British landscape he no longer understands. Versatile and unpredictable, Hughes makes full use of his clean graphic style on The Science Service, written by John Freeman, and a looser, moody noir palette on Raymond Chandler's Goldfish, here adapted by writer Tom DeHaven. Really & Truly, another Morrison collaboration, is a high-octane psychedelic road-trip torn from the pages of cult comic 2000AD. As well as sketchbook pages, merchandise and rare strips - many never seen before or out of print for over a decade - the book features an introduction by comics guru Paul Gravett.
