At 60 years old, Dave Gibbons has been writing and drawing comics for over half his lifetime. From his formative years working on British institutions such as 2000AD and Dan Dare, Gibbons became best known for his collaboration with Alan Moore on the seminal 1980s graphic novel Watchmen, which single-handedly legitimised a medium previously dismissed by mainstream culture as childish.
The remastered iPhone version of Beneath a Steel Sky may only be a month away.
GOG.com has released Beneath a Steel Sky and Lure of the Temptress, both swaddled in the site's Vista and XP-compatible wrapper, for free today as a special "holiday" gift.
