Complete with original covers coloured by John Burns (tried to imitate that style of colour or at least be influenced by it ) Art from the late great John Cooper .- Bit of a crossroads this story for me -I wasn't using layers prior to colouring this story -you call tell by the first page -but as story progresses style began to fall into place although in hindsght some of these would of benifitted from use of blur and motion filters -you can learn so much working with photoshop)Stories ultra-violent and not very believable(always liked Gerry Day's stories more as there would be tension before an action scene -this is a bit crash bam wallop )but I liked Muller a good catalyst to Scouser Trooper Jonesy and the uppercrust Rob Buckingham Codename Eagle-good character dymanic (I guess that was Gerry Day fleashing out the characters in Operation Bloodhound)GSG9 are very real -Jerry's equivilent of the S.A.S brave men .. Black October possibly based on R.A.F (Red Army Faction) or Bader Meinhoff group who these days I have more of an understanding of - it would of made a better story if we go a little insight into motivation -I guess at the time kids comics underestimated audience -Charleys War been a noteable exception to rule but here they are generic terrorists -Red Shadows without the uniform (cannon fodder for Quickfire)
When I think about this era we live in with eejits pointing guns at people to change how they may conceive the world -theres no revolution there -you become the enemy you are fighting -revolution is way more subtler than that ,you don't even notice it -that's the better kind .. subliminally rather than violently.
Seeing as this stories all about GSG9 -here's a doc about them..have to adjust subtitles for this one if you're not German.
Some R.A.F era Beats ...
love the seriousness and intent of the rhythm . I do believe the correct term for this tune is "Motorik" .. but here's some proper snotty Jerries... So Cool that The Mummies covered them.
