This page was Bryan's idea - listing in one place all of
the strips that are on the site.
a complete online strip, done in a "silent" style - with
no speech bubbles used at all, with all of the story carried by the
action. Originally commissioned by that fine purveyor of quality science
fiction and fantasy comics: 2000ad.
Since there's 76 separate panels, the link at the start of this paragraph
goes to the homepage for the strip where you can go to any of the
panels: alternatively, jump right in to panel
one and read through the entire strip.
honest answer: written by Neil Gaiman, and drawn by Bryan,
this strip attempts to answer the question always asked of creative
people - "where do you get you ideas from" in a not entirely
Papist Affair: placing this strip on the site fulfilled one
of my own long-held ambitions as it represents the first ever appearance
of Luther Arkwright in print. It's a six page strip: - go to the homepage
for the entire strip or leap straight into page
a two page comic strip on the subject of "evolution" that
Bryan wrote and drew for an Eastercon.
Warrior: another two page, detailing a woman who dreams she's
a Celtic Warrior. Drawn by Bryan and written by Lucy Swann.
A Few Gallons More: another, near legendary appearance of
Luther, this time on a parallel with two likely lads by the name of
Ogoth and Ugly Boot.
Fire Opal of Set: this is the first time that I myself ever
became aware of Bryan and his work, and from this tiny beginning this
whole site and the Heart of Empire CD-Rom have eventually grown....
this is a two part strip detailing the briefing given to a team of
adventurers from Zero-Zero at the height of the cross parallel war,
and was designed to be an introduction of the Arkwright Multiverse
for players of the Traveller role playing game.
Cannabis Conspiracy: This strip is Bryan's diatribe against
the hypocrisy of the prohibition of cannabis.
||And finally there is chapter
one of Heart of Empire and chapter
one of the Adventures of Luther Arkwright available for
free in the free
taster version of the Heart of Empire CD-Rom.
