Back cover by Sy Barry
We selected two Falk, Barry stories "The Reef" and "The Hijackers" for this issue and then we asked some of our current creatives if they would have a crack at creating sequels for each.
The result being "The Jumbie" written by Christopher Sequeira with art by Massimo Gamberi a sequel to The Reef, and "The Yacht Thieves", our sequel to The Hijackers, written and drawn by Angelo Todaro. In addition to his art on The Jumbie, Massimo also did the breathtaking back cover. It seems as though our Italian artists have been deeply influenced by Sy, (the master).
Thanks also to Barry Stubbersfield for his terrific 70 year history and
Andreas Eriksson for a wonderful interview with Sy.
