The Visible Man
« on: 14 July, 2017, 12:34:57 pm »
I've just found out that 'The Visible Man' won't be returning. I can't be the only one who enjoyed this character, can I? If nothing else, the visuals were always great. I say let's use this thread to politely request Tharg to 'Bring Back Frank' for one last arc so Pat can at least wrap-up his story (I hate stories that end part-way through)

Turns out Frank's condition is contagious, the whole planet becomes transparent, including animals and the planet itself.

Frank is no longer alone.

The End.

Since the return in the What If, I'd been assuming it was going to be an annual one-off thing.

I quite enjoyed the first reappearance but the second was dreadful.

There was a story?

Bring him back. Frank is a high quality person, I applaud his transparency.  :lol:

Actually even though Steve Green was joking / being sarcastic, I would actually love to read that story!

I'll take any payments for the idea in Galactic Groats or Euros.

If it's drawn by Henry Flint, then it'll be worth it.

The second one was about how Paedo Priests Are Bad, wasn't it? That was pretty terrible.

Yeah that was a little... cliched of the Mills, but its a shame he won't get a chance to redemn himself as he has such potential. How do we know he's not returning out of interest?

Not so much cliched, more autobiographical from the religious school he went to (not too far geographically from where the story was set, either).

I was enjoying all the weird Bowie references.
