Mega City Book Club 8: ABC Warriors:The Black Hole

It's another pubcast as Julius Howe from the Inky Fingers podcast is my guest to go in depth on the artwork of the ABC Warriors' return to the prog in 1988. Recorded in a noisy London pub we focus on the stunning debut of Simon Bisley, and why SMS is the often overlooked half of a dramatic double act, plus Julius gives us his views on the various reproductions of the original art.

This story appears in the Mek Files volume 1, available from the 2000AD online store, as well as digitally for Apple, Android, and Windows 10 devices.

All comments and suggestions gratefully received. Please get in touch if you would like to be a guest on the show.

  1. I knew I would like this podcast, book 3 & 4 were some of the first 2000ad (titan) purchases, that kicked started me on to 2oooad too, Bisleys art in these 2 book is mind blowing, wish Rebellion would do a artists edition like Zenith!

  2. check this out!, possibilly the origional art that got Bisley the job, look at top right robot and child at this link, I found it it years ago and passed it on "" for confirmation:

  3. Excellent stuff, James. Thanks. Post it in the forum?
