Heros Update

Not ONE but TWO exciting bits of information for you to digest and act upon.

Firstly we're very pleased to be able to announce that we are now accepting pre-orders for the eagerly expected Frank Bellamy's Heros the Spartan The Complete Adventures

You can pre-order the book now from this exciting page
If you chose to pay by Paypal then you are reserving a copy and you've budgeted for it at a time convenient for you. Alternately if you pay by credit card you have the satisfaction of knowing your copy is reserved but that we won't charge your card until we have the book in stock from the printers and we're ready to ship. The book is set to retail at just £95. We wanted to keep the price below three figures while still offering our usual high production values. We're working on a shipping price for customers outside the UK and it will be finalised once we have an exact weight. This will be another large book but we only charge the cost price of airmail postage to keep it honest for our loyal customers.
And what about the second piece of news? Those of you who collect our super limited editions will be pleased to know that once again we will be offering a deluxe leather bound edition with extra features. Most of this is still under wraps at the moment but I can tell you that this edition will comprise of just 120 copies worldwide making it an instant collectible.  Be warned that these leather editions will not hang around long! We will have the price and the pre-order available in the next few days. Watch the skies or preferably subscribe to our email newsletter for the latest updates.
Please remember that for both the regular and the leather editions if you pre-order you are guaranteed to be able to purchase at the stated pre-order price, regardless of what happens to the strength of GP Pound Sterling, the cost of paper, printing et cetera in the next couple of months.

Remember Heros isn't our only book featuring Frank Bellamy's glorious artwork; see here for details.
That's all for now, just remember not to put any books on the bonfire come November 5th, that's the Fireman's job.
Best Regards


  1. I wish someone would make a book collecting all of david wright's pinups

  2. Hi Mr Pelican. Good to note your interest in Heros! Seriously it'd be lovely to see a full book of David Wright's pin-up work. I can tell you that the biggest selection of his pin-up work that has been collected in one place so far is shown in Illustrators # 2 which is currently at the printers. See here for more details.

  3. Wonderful news! I just completed the PayPal transaction for the full I can rest easy knowing that I will not miss the book!

    Thank you for taking care and putting out a wonderful collection of Bellamy's artwork.
