ArtworkThe Manga Max article was a thing of beauty before you even got inside the magazine - or it would have been, had this alternative front cover for Manga Max 17 been used; the first page of the article sets the tone. Both of those images are from Phil Hession's (the layout artist) homepage. The actual cover of MM 17 has the same wording, but the emphasis is on the Yoshiaki Kawajiri text with the illustration for that story taking the place of the imposing Dai-X illustration. Phil's work is original - please do not copy it without his permission. Click here to view the cover which was actually used.
3 September 2001 - here's the good stuff! Steve Kyte, the illustrator of the Manga Max article, has started to provide me with the original and production artwork he created and collated during his work on the article. The images below will be added to as Steve re-creates some of them, and some were not used in the magazine for space reasons. Please take note of the copyright notices on the images - they are very impressive pieces of work and should not be reproduced without Steve's position - the intro page to the article has his contact details.
