  1. Absolutely, this, along with the Kev O’Neill’s of the same time, are the jewels in my original art collection. This was one of the very first pieces I bought and, in hindsight, I was extremely lucky to get such a prize piece as there weren’t so many people collecting back then.
    It sits on the wall to the right of my monitors and when I was searching for a space-related title for a track on the album I happened to glance up at it and the immortal line ‘In Orbit Every Monday’ made the decision for me.

  2. Having chatted with Ian Gibson about the long-lost Verdus artwork recently, seeing this gives me goosebumps… Early Sam Slade represents some of my earliest and fondest memories of 2000AD; amazing stuff. Lovely to see this, Kev.
