29/10/2021 here is a picture of the most villainous character in Mazeworld. Never named in the book and Initially appearing in angel form he is revealed, as he describes himself, as “ the terror at the centre of the maze . . “ “. . the embodiment of evil”.
In the book his throne is drawn as being of a relatively modest kind. Here it is made grander - in part because he deserves it, but largely because it was more interesting to design a new one than repeat the original.. These "drawings" are unrequested and done after all largely for my own entertainment.
Mazeworld copyright - Alan Grant & arthur ranson
Hope all's well. He's certainly spreading out more in his new capacious throne. Great to see these updated Mazeworld scenes ~ keep 'em coming!
All the Best,
thanks, Glad you like them.
There is another one in process.
Great stuff Arthur,
Looking forward to that!
All the Best,
Having chosen to do something quite complicated I think it will be a while before you see it.
Hi again Arthur,
Not to worry, I know it will be worth the wait!
Hope all's well,
Hello mr.Ranson, i'm really glad to see that you are doing mazeworld art, big fan of all your work but mazeworld in particular is one of my favourite comics ever. Sadly here in my country (Spain) it has never been traslated or properly published.
PS: sorry if my english is lacking
thank you for the compliment.
No plans that I am aware of to do a Spanish version I regret to say
Your English is better than my Spanish. I never got much beyond "dos cervezas por favor"
All the best.
I am an idiot.
A spanish company took up rights to publish a Mazeworld translation last September.
I have not been sent a copy so perhaps it is still not yet in print. but presumably will be soon.
Hope you see this.
Thanks for the information, after reading your message i searched through several spanish comic publishers and did not found anything about a spanish Mazeworld edition so i imagine it has not been printed yet. In any case i'm really happy to see your work being published here, i hope they make a good quality compilation of all three mazeworld stories.
I'm afraid I don't know the name of the company that intended to do the Spanish edition or what has happened to their plans.
It would be (have been?) the complete collection.
If or when it does happen I will announce it here.
if you are still following this - I have made enquiries and will let you know when I do.
Hi Arthur; and merry christmas to you too!
Thank you for constantly keeping me informed about this future spanish mazeworld edition. I cannot wait to get a copy once it's released!
you are welcome.
Muy feliz navidad.
all the best,
if you are still visiting - I have been told the Spanish edition of Buttonman is expected in Summer of 2022.
Hi Arthur, first of all Happy 2022, second do you mean buttonman or mazeworld?
Buttonman was already published in Spain by ECC in 2016, It was in softcover and separated in 4 volumes
I already own the buttonman stories but i would gladly buy them again if they did a new hardcover edition.
I'm an idiot - of course I meant Mazeworld.
Buttonman was on my mind because I was recently promised an update on the possibility of a movie.
I'm touched that you keep coming back.
Thank you for the good wishes.
Cartem Books just released a press note about their future releases, and Mazeworld (translated as "Mundo laberinto") wil be published in september this year. First day purchase for sure!
thanks for the information. I hadn't heard.
Hope it meets your expectations.
'Mundo Laberinto' sounds even more exciting as a title than 'Mazeworld'.
All the best.
