Indie Cover Spotlight: A1 #3

(sorry, I missed the update yesterday…)

I’m not sure if this particular book counts as “obscure,” but I’m relatively certain it’s not a household name either: A1 issue #3:

A1 was a British anthology, published by Atomeka Press, and edited by Garry Leach and Dave Elliott. Each issue was square-bound and usually clocked in at 100 pages or more, featuring such amazing creators as Alan Moore, Eddie Campbell, Dave McKean, Glenn Fabry, Grant Morrison, Moebius, John Bolton, and Brian Bolland.

Mr. Bolland, by the way, provided the cover to this issue.

If you’re a fan of anthologies, or the 90s wave of British creators, you owe it to yourself to track down the back issues of A1. There were 6 issues of the series published, plus a one-shot titled The A1 True Life Bikini Confidential . Apparently there was another 4-issue series published in 1992 by Marvel’s Epic label, in full color, and an A1: Big Issue 0 from Image in 2004, though I haven’t seen those later books.
