Bryan Hitch’s Website Is Down… Literally

|

Bryan Hitch has had an online gallery for his works longer than most, and is keen to send potential buyers of his original comic book work through the site. It also seems fo a roaring trade and it gets pages ASAP. Given the popularity of his art style and the comic book characters he has worked on, he can also charge quite a bit of money and people are happy to pay it, especially with the recent drop in the value of the pound. .

It may be a little more difficult now than before. The website currently reads “Site under maintenance. Bryan Hitch gallery and sales are closed. I agreed to build a shop for comic book artist Bryan Hitch over three years ago. He promised to draw an order of my choice After three years of countless delays and apologies, the art has yet to come to fruition. So if you’re here to buy art, my apologies. I can’t say his apology wasn’t entertaining, So there you go Justin Washburn.
