A never-before-reprinted adventure of classic British anti-hero The Steel Claw, in a Cold War spy adventure drawn by original series artist Jesus Blasco!
Tom Tully is one the most prolific writers ever to grace
British comics. His diverse portfolio of work was produced over
four decades. Born in Glasgow, Tully entered the industry in the
sixties when he began working for Fleetway. One of his earliest
strips, Heros the Spartan, ran in the original Eagle and was
illustrated by the great Frank Bellamy. He also wrote Mytek the
Mighty (Valiant & Vulcan) and The Steel Claw
(Valiant & Vulcan) in the same decade. The seventies
saw Tully work on a variety of significant stories including Adam
Eterno (Thunder), Johnny Red (Battle), Harlem Heroes
(2000 AD), The Leopard from Lime Street (Buster) and
Roy of the Rovers (Tiger), the strip he worked on longer
than any other writer.
Jesús Blasco is considered one of the most significant artists in Spanish comics. He created Cuto for Boliche magazine and produced several science fiction and adventure titles. In the 1960s he joined the British publishing agency Fleetway and worked on Steel Claw, Billy the Kid and Buffalo Bill amongst others.
For 2000 AD he provided the art for several episodes of Invasion!
