SS Crompton's Lost Comics

Watermarked PDF

SS Crompton is known for his work on Grimtooth's Traps, the Nuclear War Card Games, Tunnels & Trolls and Demi the Demoness. But he's worked on numerous other comics for magazines, newspapers and prozines.

This book collects some of this rare and unpublished comic work in one book. These comics had great concepts or art, but got "lost" somewhere along the way and some have never been published - until now.

This book includes a never before published Demi scene, the two Grimtooth's Traps comics, his Alice in Westerland project and several other fantasy, sci-fi, manga and humor strips, complete with details of why he drew them and how they became 'lost'.

SS Crompton finished off all the art and lettered uncompleted pages, so you can read these comics as if this book were an anthology. It's 56 pages of Crompton Comic History!

This comic also contains a Dr Who/Gilligans island crossover, a Robert E Howard HP Lovecraft splash page, my version of Mobieus' Airtight Garage and a bmx superhero story. Plus a complete list of all the comics I have ever done. It's a bit like reading a classic issue of Heavy Metal magazine.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
