Signed by artist bottom right of 2nd panelThese are the Signed unique original Gouache paintings by Oliver Frey.
This hand painted full colour illustration board was published in 'The Slave Traders' a Trigan Empire strip published between March and May 1977. Oliver Frey's incredibly dynamic action-packed painting style worked brilliantly for this strip. The artist's graphic depiction of monsters, robots, vile enemies, explosions and burning cities gave The Trigan Empire a more graphic style and a new lease of life.
Frey also laid out his panels in a more powerful way than his predecessors, using incredible layout techniques including overlays, diagonal cuts, lightening bolt separations and jagged cut-ins which shadow and accentuate the action in the panels.
The powerful storylines paired with Oliver Frey's mastery of the human figure and bold colour techniques, etches a special place for these boards in the history of The Trigan Empire.
This is a rare chance to own a special piece of original British comic art history.Click for larger image ...
