La Jeunesse de Blueberry 5 (2), Terreur sur le Kansas, page 40

Comic Strip


As long as Charlier wrote the Young Blueberry stories, they connected well with the main series in my view. This page depicts an infamous episode during the American Civil War: The Bushwackers´ attack on Lawrence, Kansas in August 1863. In Charlier´s and Wilson´s story, the young Blueberry manages to save the Jayhawker leader Jim Lane´s life. Colin Wilson not only tried to emulate Giraud´s style in this album, he also used Giraud´s characteristic (at this time period) large-scale art boards.

About Colin Wilson

Colin Wilson is a comic book artist, born in Christchurch, New Zealand on 31 October 1949. He is known for his detailed artwork which he uses in 2000 AD stories like Rogue Trooper and Judge Dredd. According to Andy Diggle, the 2000 AD editor who got him back to the title in the late nineties and has worked with him since, "no one ... draws near-future military hardware like him". Wilson has also had success in the French comics field, working on his own title Dans l'Ombre du Soleil, as well as having runs on well-established titles, like Blueberry. David Bishop, another 2000 AD editor says that Wilson is "a true rarity, a comics artist whose work has been acclaimed in America, Britain and most especially in Europe." Wilson received his formal training as an artist at Christchurch School of Art in 1967-1968. Working as an illustrator, he started his own fanzine,Strips in 1977.
