Strip 1 is an archetypal example of Tom Leighton’s futuristic universe. Luminescent cityscapes burst with contrasting locations, defined by iconic buildings jostling against historic and modern intersections. Leighton’s fascination with the spectacle of city life has led him towards the unique style, with disorientates and reorientates his audience. Berlin, London, New York, Paris, Shanghai, Tokyo and Venice are just a few of the cities that have been subject to Leighton’s synthesising approach, as the artist ‘pieces them together like a jigsaw’.
