    Simon Bisley Deadline Magazine #8 Cover Painting Tank Girl and Johnny Nemo Original Art (Deadline Publications, 1989). Oi! Tank Girl! Pow! Johnny Nemo! Painted cover by Simon Bisley! This cover is so fresh it's about to head-butt you in the nose. The Biz is well-known as the Main Man's main man, illustrator for DC's Lobo series, as well as his UK 2000 AD work. Tank Girl debuted in issue #1 of this title, but eventually got her own Dark Horse series and even her own movie in 1995. Johnny Nemo first appeared in Eclipse Comics' Strange Days in 1984. This piece has some serious alternative comics cred here. Oil on 8.5" x 12" Bristol board affixed to a larger Bristol. There is a small one-third inch strip at the bottom that was added to get the cover dimensions correct and that is where Bisley signed the piece. Light toning on the back board, otherwise, in Excellent condition.
