“You Dropped The Coffee, Stephanie.” COMICS! Sometimes They Shaped Us In A Million Invisible Ways!

John Kane

I was a bit rushed this week so I thought I’d save some time by doing a gallery instead of a bunch of words arranged in upsetting orders. Hilariously, I saved no time whatsoever but I can now present to you a cover gallery of all the issues of WARRIOR Magazine I own (i.e. no issue 1). They are old, stained, dog-eared and read to within an inch of their lives but they still look nice and give a savoury taste of the groundbreaking early ’80s anthology that thrilled me from the age of twelve and up, up and away. Anyhoo, have a look if you want. (Also: How To Make a Zirk! Really!)

Alan Moore and Alan Davis correctly predict the reaction of the Internet to those Miracleman reprints coming in January 2014. Who sez he ain’t magic!?!

Anyway, this…

Oh, WARRIOR was VERY GOOD! there, now I can categorise it as a review. Tricks of the trade, my loves. Tricks of the trade.

  1. Some truly inspired art up there. Lot’s of great stuff inside too I’d imagine! And that extra put me on my ass laughing. Luckily I have an empty eggbox around here somewhere– time to get to work.

  2. what ever happened to Alan Mallard-Moore?

  3. Thanks, John! I own only a handful of those issues and it is nice to see the rest of them.

    Some great art here. I had to laugh when I saw the Big Ben cover. It is more inspired than the character :-)

    They really did groundbreaking work back then, no question.

  4. Beautiful array of covers. The “V” covers are all especially brilliant — evocative and cool as can be. Plus, the Steve Parkhouse samurai cover is just brilliant.

    Imagine if this were being published today and it was still only 2 bucks in the U.S.? It would be the best 2 dollars you could spend every month.

  5. I actually picked up a copy of Warrior #1 recently for fairly cheap, around £3 ($5/6). Ok condition. Reckon it is worth something? I’ll probably keep it. Don’t want to collect the whole run but it is good to have a piece of British comics history.

  6. I remember Big Ben being played primarily as a cheap joke in Miracleman. The best Big Ben joke I remember from his own series came in a story where the hero gets captured by the evil Dai the Death, who looks like “Prisoner”-era Patrick Mc Goohan.

    Big Ben: What do you want?

    Dai the Death: Information!

    Big Ben: You won’t get it, you know.

    Dai the Death: By hook or by crook, I will.

  7. @Brendan: Glad you enjoyed ‘em. Go on, you do a Zirk!

    @S: He went Out There!

    @AndyD: No problemo! It’s okay, there’s still groundbreaking work today. But it’s good to remember those who came before us.

    @Zaragosa: Nice stuff, huh? Warrior at two dollars today? I’d snatch yer hand off, son. Bargain!

    @spennyspenny: Don’t rub it in, ey! I could be wrong but I don’t think #1 is worth a lot money wise, but it’s worth more than riches comics-wise. Hang on to it!

    @Peter: Yeah, I didn’t mind Big Ben myself. But my love for Patrick Macnee Avengers, The Prisoner etc is pretty deep seated.

    Who is Number One? Alan bloody Moore, mates! Good day! Good day to all of you. Pip pip! Ta-ra ra boom di-ay!
