After shining my spotlight on Russ Heath, urging for a well-deserved
AE, now we turn to someone who is at least equally deserving; Craig Russell.
Even though Russell has done enough long-form narratives to fill a book with one story, I personally would like to see a nice, representative sampling of his broad oeuvre, spotlighting various stages of his career, at least for his first AE.
What would make this particularly appealing is that Russell has had a lot of work produced directly from his exquisite pencils. It would be wonderful seeing all the nuances of his delicate pencil lines and shading in the large format AE affords.
What follows is a selection of stories I’d like to see.
Please add your suggestions.
Let’s start with ‘Breakdown on Starship Remembrance’ which first appeared in Nightmusic.
