We didn’t get US comics easily in the UK in the late 80’s early 90’s – we got omnibus magazines like Zones and Shockwave. These books introduced me to Neil Gaiman, Dave McKean, Grant Morrison, Howard Chaykin, Bernie Wrightson, and Len Wein. Specifically, the strips included were the original Swamp Thing, Chaykin’s ‘86 version of The Shadow, the Black Orchid mini series, Animal Man and Hellblazer. What a great introduction to comics. Pretty much decided my tastes right there. Good hob they picked such high quality material!
