Whistler was originally created by comics making machine Bolt-01 (a.k.a. artist/letter and art editor/publisher of FutureQuake Publications Dave Evans) for Dogbreath, the Strontium Dog fanzine. As all good characters seem to do, Whistler has pretty much taken on a life of his own and made cameos in a multitude of Dogbreath strips - and even managed to find his way into the pages of 2000AD, courtesy of Carlos Ezquerra!
Bolt-01 has been a great supporter of our small press work down the years (and was the man responsible for first pairing us up oh-so many moons ago!), so it was a no brainer to ask him to get involved in this. Thankfully, he managed to take some time out from creating some of the best small press anthologies money can buy to provide us with this weeks image.
