This is the decorated title page from THE ADVENTURE ANNUAL c. 1953

Hard-Boiled McLoughlin

Denis did many book cover illustrations for the publishing firm of T.V. Boardman from 1948 to 1967. Here are just a few. (Thanks to Mike Kidson for the B&W scans, to Denis McLoughlin for the 'Tweak" color image, and to Francis Hertzberg for the cover to his book.)

The "Workroom" Mural

Pictured here is the giant mural in Denis' workroom. The black & white image shows Denis posing for a publicity picture in 1976 on the release of his encyclopedia of the West, Wild and Woolly. The color image shows part of the same wall as it was in late-1997.

Commando Years

Commando is one of the few "native" British comics still being published. Eight issues of Commando come out every month and, generally, at least one of them is graced by the art of Denis McLoughlin. So far, Denis has drawn about 130 issues (look for a list on the information page). Here are two half-page panels taken before the addition of any text so that you can really get a feel for the art.
