Artist Chris Weston is no stranger to mayhem, having drawn THE FILTH, THE TWELVE, and many more beloved comics classics. Doubtless the ninja training of working with Grant Morrison and JMS has honed his senses into the lightning fast reflexes he needed to actually solve a crime! After witnessing a robbery at his local bank, Weston raced home to sketch the dastardly perp. The rest:
I took my drawings round to the local cop-shop. Finding it full of your usual oiks and ne’er-do-wells, I was reluctant to broadcast my status as as a grass (yes I’m aware of the irony of that last statement given that I’m now announcing my deeds to the world on a blog)… so I gingerly approached the desk and whispered “I’d like to report a serious crime…”. The copper patiently asked for some more details, so I mouthed “The bank robbery …”. This got his attention and he asked me if I was a witness.
“I’m more than a witness!” I blurted, “Check these out!”
With the help of Weston’s artistic fidelity, the felon was nabbed and justice restored. All in a day’s work for…Comic Book Artist Man.
