Description

Brian Lewis was a veteran artist with Fleetway comics and publications, working on science fiction in the 1950s, plus Lion, Tiger, TV21 comics plus Wham! and Smash! humour titles, followed by animation. Lewis suffered the life of a ‘starving artist’ after a heart attack in 1970, taking two years to get back into IPC’s humour division, then flexed his style to suit Dez Skinn’s House of Hammer, 2000AD and Vampirella for US publisher Warren. His one ‘Starsky and Hutch’ cover for British MAD is a little staid, and is not helped by the somewhat drab way the foreign printing reproduced colour. Tragically, Lewis succumbed to a second coronary, ridiculously young at 49 – (DR: Feb 2021, with great thanks to David Roach and his excellent book 'Masters of British Comic Art')
