Marvel UK - ThunderCats Issue 81 Page 6 (pencils)

Pencilled by: Martin Griffiths
From the collection of: Martin Griffiths
Owner’s website: N/A
Notes of Interest: Another exciting example of pencil artwork, drawn and donated by acclaimed UK comics artist Martin Griffiths – this piece was subsequently inked by Tim Perkins, who himself donated a scan of the inked version of this page. Viewing both this piece and the inked version that Tim donated gives us a real insight into the production of this issue! An interesting note is that, even though this piece was pencilled by Martin Griffiths, when this page was published the pencils were wrongly credited to Jim Mooney! This page is the final of six showcased in this gallery that make up the complete story “Wilykat’s Wish part 3”, which featured in Marvel UK’s ThunderCats Issue #81, and we are lucky to have all six pages hosted here in both their pencilled and inked forms. For the completed version of this particular page, a decorative banner containing the ThunderCats insignia and spanning the width of the page would be added to the bottom of the page, proclaiming what readers could expect to see in the next issue – note how Martin has left a space at the bottom of the page with the words “Next Issue” to accommodate this banner. As with so many of the pieces he donated to us, Martin generously sent us a very detailed scan of this page – click on the image above to take you to a large version!
