Alan Davis Fact-File Art

Alan Davis posted some art which he drew for the Eaglemoss Fact-Files on his website, with a bit of blurb!

Cover for an issue of the Marvel Fact-file from Eaglemoss. The brief was to recreate the original cover of Captain Britain 1.

Along with a copy of the original cover is the original blackline art. Between finishing the art and publication plans to republish Jeff Hawke were shelved and Hawke was replaced by the Freefall Warriors.




The Eaglemoss three page gatefolds usually show the internal workings of armour, robots or machines. This wasn't possible with the spread dedicated to CB's foe, MASTERMIND because he/it was a hologram. So this shows the cavern computer responsible for generating the holographic avatars-- Mastermnd, Jeeves and dwarfish drones.



The second Eaglemoss gatefold was dedicated to the FURY with four inserts of internal workings.
