I have to admit to being something of a Millennium sponge, trawling the world wide web, daily, to see what I can soak up about my beloved franchise which often leads me to the door of fellow fans who have committed their admiration to type or paper. One such individual is Adam Glazer who is, in his own words, "...trained with an eye towards the publishing/entertainment industry dealing with storyboards, comic book illustration, writing, and et cetera."

People who know me will know that I am a huge admirer of artists such as Ted McKeever and Dave McKean. There is something so irrepressibly dark, a word we Millennium fans like, about their work even when the subject matter is not. Over at Adam's website I happened upon an illustration of the mighty Frank Black that I just loved, it has that unquantifiable Millennium darkness about it, due in no small part to the artist's attempts to capture the tone of fan favourite, 'The Curse of Frank Black.'

Adam is very much a fan of Millennium, dating back to the days of the legendary Brian Dixon, and it was a pleasure to speak to him as well as share his work with you all. I urge you to check his website out, share some love in return, and just imagine how sensational a Millennium comic would be?

Kudos to the artists! Keep up the wonderful work. I look forward to new and interesting stuff on this site all the time.

Brilliant, I love it! Captures that tacit loneliness of Frank wonderfully. It's one thing to draw something that looks like Frank, something else to draw something that feels like him.
Congratulations on a stunning piece!

Thank you :). It's one of my beloved pieces and I've thought about a remake to reflect what goes on around us today. We'll see.

This is who we are!

This is great! Kudos to the artist, the image of Frank is just fantastic, reading that it was inspired by The Curse of Frank Black makes it even more enjoyable - such a fabulous episode. I would very much like to see more ""Millennium"" from this individual!!!!

Thanks for the kind compliments. The image I have is only a scanned copy of the original since the latter is in the hands of the infamous Brian Dixon from several years ago which I mailed to. It was all done entirely in black ink the 'old school' way.

"The Curse of Frank Black" remains to be one of my favorite episodes, out of several. I will never forget that Halloween special on that Friday night.

Besides, I relate to the character in some ways :).

This is who we are.
