Waiting For Tommy 5
WAITING FOR TOMMY 5

Welcome again to Waiting For Tommy. I’m Rich Johnston, your ever-loving rumour monger taking a short break to share with you thoughts, meanderings and art cut and pasted from all over the place.

Newcomer Frank Quitely (or Vince Deighan as everyone knows him) burst onto the US scene through fifteen years of hard slog, and almost ten years of being published in comics available to the USA and totally ignored. Dark Horse Presents, Vertigo series, Batman special, no one was giving his the time of day. But that was before Authority.

A number of people have said his influences are Art Adams, Bryan Hitch, even Windsor McCay. But has anyone else noticed that every single line he draws is by that grand old man of Scottish Comics, Dudley D Watkins?

Famed for his page-long strips for Scottish newspapers, The Broons and Oor Wullie, Quitely, Duncan drew these strips for 50 years before his death and they’ve continued in very much a similar style since. Indeed, Quitely’s first major work for comic magazine Electric Soup, was a parody of The Broons called The Greens.

Here’s Oor Wullie

Familiar linework at all? And then there’s the Broons.

See how those faces work, all that’s missing are the homosexual lips.

That attention to detail and variety? That’s braw!

All it needs is an exploding building or two, and that’s your Authority.

I think I’ll have a lie down now.
