Marvel UK - ThunderCats Issue 12 cover

Pencilled by: Martin Griffiths
Inked by: Tim Perkins
From the collection of: Tim Perkins
Owner’s website: www.wizards-keep.com
Notes of Interest: This piece is one of several examples showcasing the team of Martin Griffiths on pencils and Tim Perkins on inks. This superb piece was not only the cover for Marvel UK’s ThunderCats Issue #12, but was also used as the front cover for a Spring Special of ThunderCats (again published by Marvel UK), which reprinted #’s 11 & 12 and was published in March 1988. On a personal note, this artwork is very special to TCL’s resident ThunderCats comics fan Chris (He-Fan), as this is an early pencil-and-ink version of the cover of the first ThunderCats comic he ever owned!! Once again this piece is from the archives of artist Tim Perkins, and Tim very kindly sent us a good-sized scan of it – click on the image above to view a larger version!
