Remembering THE STEEL CLAW


I was interviewed recently (along with others) by Karl Stock for the Judge Dredd Megazine about my recollections of reading The Steel Claw strip when I was a kid. They call me a "comics expert" but I wouldn't go that far. Issue 429 will be out this coming Wednesday.

...and if you enjoyed The Steel Claw or you'd like to check it out, I thoroughly recommend the first volume that Rebellion have just published. The restoration team have done an incredible job considering they had to scan the art from comics that are nearly 60 years old and were originally printed on cheap newsprint!

I have a steel claw book from 2005 published by titan. 3 stories included steel claw dr deutz and sharkey. Do you know whether the stories in the new book are the same.

They are, plus you get two stories from the annuals. But the main thing is the reproduction of the artwork is better than the book from 16 years ago. Many of the fine lines didn't reproduce in the one Titan published. This one is a brand new restoration and looks much better.
