Honour Among Punks: The Complete Baker Street Collection

Front Cover
Baker Street, the center of England's punk movement in a London few would ever know, a life even less would ever see. Where being different is the rule, "ratting" the gambling vice of a city's underground, and death is often around the next corner. Here is where mystery, intrigue and suspense are more than a game to the residents of post-Victorian London, it's a way of life. Now the cobblestones run red with blood as a series of murders terrorize the night. But as Sharon Ford may soon find out, sometimes the solution is more costly than any crime.Guy Davis is a self-taught writer/illustrator who has worked in the comics industry for over 17 years.

About the author (2003)

Guy Davis (The Marquis, Aliens, Predator) is best known for his pulp stylings that appear in Sandman Mystery Theatre. This is his first work for Marvel Comics.

Mala Mastroberte is a self-taught photographer, model, stylist, and editor. Her passion for vintage pin-up and pulp art motivated her to become all of these as she undergoes a transformation into her favorite characters by presenting herself in these classic renditions. In her self-portraits, she embarks on a journey through the years of the changing image of the female. Most of her work is based on or inspired by illustrated vintage magazine and paperback covers, as she finds them visually stunning and absolutely captivating. Each and every one tells a fascinating story, serving as a visual and aesthetic guide to the era, and hint at how women and sexuality were perceived and portrayed during different times in history. Despite having an extensive experience posing, she doesn't consider herself a professional model, or rather not just a model. She has a vast wardrobe and prop collection which allows her to immerse herself into any role and assume different identities within the classic book or magazine cover or one required by the photographer. She has also created several of her own original covers and pin-ups, again inspired by some of the great works of the era.
