We've featured the work of comic book creator, designer and photographer Steve Cook on this site many a time.
But we are not lone, it seems, in our appreciation. London's National Portrait Gallery has acquired a number of his photographs of comic book creators, and are running a feature on the man.
There is one person who intrigues me in particular and her name is Madonna. A strange twist of fate placed us in an empty train carriage to Tunbridge Wells a few years ago and we had a pretty deep conversation about life, the universe and everything as the lush, green English countryside rolled past the window. At that point she wasn't the pop star, but the children's author and that is how I'd like to photograph her.
Here are some of those acquired photographs, featuring Mark Millar…
And the launch of Deadline Magazine with the late Brett Ewins, Jamie Hewlett and Steve Dillon.
Steve also tells us,
I'm designing logos for Vertigo and DC Comics and I've just contributed to a book about comic book logo design to be published by Random House.
A quick search of the NPG site also finds a photographic portrait of Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie by Jonathan Worth.
And from Toby Greenville, Posy Simmonds.
The comic creators are coming to take your culture…
