Frank’s quite super

Quick plug for my local dealer, Ivor Davis at Red Hot Comics in Castlemilk in my constituency. Tomorrow from 12 the legendary Frank Quitely (real name Vincent Deighan) will be making a personal appearance to speak to fans. For those unaware of the man’s genius, Quitely is probably the most admired and gifted comics artist working today. Below is a sample of his work from the front cover of the recent All Star Superman, but it was his amazing work on New X-Men a few years ago that first caught my attention. He’s another Glaswegian. What is it about Scots – particularly Glaswegians – that they are among the leading talents in American comics?
