To commemorate this, here’s Zenith doing a little celebratory 80’s jig.
Played around with washes again.
When I was about 12-13 years old I had a subscription to the great, now defunct Swedish comics magazine ‘Magnum’. They ran stuff like Judge Dredd, Hombre, Axa, Taxi, Jeremiah - you get it, quality european stuff.
I remember so vividly first reading Zenith by Grant Morrison and Steve Yeowell; I was amazed and deeply affected by it - frightened even. It was unlike anything I’d read, simultaneously so gorgeous, bleak and extremely mature that I had a hard time getting it out of my head. I’d argue I still haven’t.
Zenith is my Watchmen - the defining, greatest comic of all time.
It was tied up in legal battles for nearly 23 years, but finally came back in print, collected in four hardbacks (two of which aren’t out yet). Do yourselves a favour and buy it.
