Happy Mondays: Rusty Staples

When not writing comics, Michael Carroll likes to write about comics. On his excellent blog, Rusty Staples, he goes into various subjects related to the history of comics. I’ve always known that he was an encyclopedia when it came to 2000AD but it seems this applies to a lot of books. He has written about Star Wars in 2000AD, branding in the Doctor Who Magazine and Marvel UK amongst other topics.

The latest post is about Battle, a war comic that led to the creation of 2000AD, includes the work of some legendary creators and has inspired a few too. Mike goes into all this in the blog so go check it out. https://michaelowencarroll.wordpress.com/2019/06/02/branding-battle-picture-weekly/
