Comment

Colin Wilson has not only drawn the young Blueberry. He has also pencilled and inked a huge (240 pages) Italian Tex Willer Speciale album. I find it curiously interesting that an Australian artist has worked extensively on US Western stories created in France and Italy. The Last Rebel album is very readable.

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.

Charlyd77 Au-delà d’être sans doute le repreneur de Blueberry le plus fidèle à Gir, il faut reconnaître à Colin Wilson une grande maitrise d’un mouvement et des encrages de belle qualité.
