Comicsphere: Revere 2000ad
This was an amazing story that ran in the 2000ad comic. It was written by John Smith and featured some wonderful artwork by Simon Harrison. It appears, since it was reprinted in Extreme Edition #20 that people on the forums consider it to be something of an acquired taste. Some people have a problem with the writing and others have a problem with the art. It is one of those things where is you fall for it you fall for it deeply. I fell for it.
Revere is a witch-boy from London and this is his journey. There were so many wonderful touches and the lyrical storytelling had me hooked from the first page. At some point I became disenchanted with the magazine as a whole and stopped buying it — as a result I missed the last concluding part. Through traveling I managed to miss it’s re-issue in the Extreme Edition format. So, this, as well as celebrating the piece, is a call for any fellow travelers in cyberspace who might be able to help — if you can help me get my hands on a copy I would be eternally grateful.
