The Stainless Steel Rat – original artwork!

SSR1 ep3 p1-2s

Ahem… Look what’s just arrived at Carroll Towers: Carlos Ezquerra’s actual original artwork for the opening double-page spread of The Stainless Steel Rat, from 2000AD #142, cover date 8 December 1979!

The 2000AD adaptation of Harry Harrison’s classic SF novel The Stainless Steel Rat had probably the single greatest impact on my formative years. Not only was it a fantastic adaptation with stunning artwork in an already brilliant comic, it introduced me to the works of Harry Harrison, and without his influence (and, later, his friendship and guidance) I probably wouldn’t be a writer. It was because of Harry that I joined the Irish Science Fiction Association and made some wonderful life-long friends…

… Including, of course, my totally awesome wife!
