We need NEW BLOOD- Join us, Joe....
« on: 15 March, 2018, 04:00:03 pm »
We've had a bunch of talented new Art Droids coming through the construction line recently, any in particular you'd like to see back in the Prog sooner rather than later?

Without referencing specific back Progs or specials, the following made an indelible mark in recent memory;

Jimmy Broxton; A striking style that immediately caught my attention. Would love to see him back in the Prog on either Hope or Sinister Dexter. Or even tackling Dredd.
Kei Zama; Her Blackblood one-off was brilliant. There has to be more ABC Warriors stuff on the way, right? Right?
Leonardo Manco; Very much an established artist already, but his recent turn on Rogue Trooper highlighted the fact that Tharg should pay out for a full time transfer fee. Pair him up with John Smith and see what happens.

Leonardo Manco posted this up on Facebook at the turn of the year.

It's all right, that's in every contract.
That's what they call a sanity clause.

That looks brilliant! Can’t wait.

Would like to see more from Brixton too.

Can’t remember a Blackblood one-off, where was that?

Being contrary,  I don't think we see half enough of many well-established art droids: I know lots have moved on to bigger things, or worse, left this mortal realm entirely,  but still,  could we not find more space for Andrew Currie and Neil Googe,  Jake Lynch and Nigel Dobbyn, Nick Dyer and John McCrea, not to mention the criminally underused genius of Chris Weston (no, the current Dredd is not enough). And where's my SMS SF epic?

Mark Sexton
Tom Foster

Their work is so good, I just can’t understand why they haven’t featured more.

On this thread how about more Carl Critchlow?

(While we are at it how about more Bolland and Fabry?....well you did ask....you can only dream.)

I always liked Anthony Williams. He used to knock out pages of Sinister Dexter like there was no tomorrow then he just disappeared.

Anthony Williams is one of those droids whose work we've had the pleasure of seeing get better and better over the years, and by all accounts he's fast and dependable. Should be a mainstay in the prog, IMO.

And yeah, a 25 part SMS mega-space-epic please Tharg, if that's okay  :thumbsup:

Just realised that Anthony Williams isn't exactly a new droid, so would like to fight for Nick Dyer Block.
His style and storytelling skills are awesome, more please!

Yep always enjoyed Anthony Williams work and as you say it feels like he grow on the page. Loved his work on VCs and then enjoyed his tenure on Sinister Dexter and would gladly have seen that continue (mind we have Steve Yeowell there now so can't complain!).

Funny enough we took the kids to Coinsbrough Castle near Doncaster the other day and all the illustrations on the information boards (and projected talking characters come to that) and what not was done my him. It was weird to see his work in a completely different context and I'm sure the kids really enjoyed my little addition to the history lesson as I discussed the work of the man that drew the pictures!
