I was a huge fan of The Cybermen strip in Doctor Who Magazine. Lots of story put into one page, and some very, very striking art from Adrian Salmon. It was the first page I turned to when I got my new magazine.
I love the way Ade makes the cybermen so SOLID. His use of blacks is really inspired, giving the pages a real WOW factor. I would love to own a page of the artwork from that series, and whilst I keep a look out, I don’t realistically think it will happen. So you can imagine my excitement when I saw this piece for sale! And, it’s a piece I’d never seen before. It’s a very striking cover for the convention booklet, and you can see the solidness of the figure, the way the cyberman has been stylised and the use of blacks. I love it!
