Cheers , it's great to see the progression,  Angelic andIndigo Prime show a improvement, as did the Rogue Trooper strip. I'm looking forward to seeing how the works looking in the next 20 years :)

There are just too many amazing creators to get through!
But I'll keep plugging away.

Here's Will Simpson:

I couldn't agree more with your observation that Simpson seems to have fallen out of conversation concerning great and/or important 2000ad artists. *

He was 1989-Tharg's equivalent of Bolland or Gibbons; one of your blog's joys is that it provokes ideas like an alternate reality where it was the style of Simpson, rather than Bisley, that influenced the incoming generation of painters.


* Simpson's art is one of the few enthusiasms the pert and luscious Douglas Wolk and I do not share: 'Will Simpson's art on the first part of the sequence is, as usual, a little too delicate for Dredd' (link)

Maybe I’m missing something, but why do refer to “Friday” as “Fr1day”?

As Top (Helm) dies*, he gives Friday his helmet and writes his name in blood, using the 1 as the I:

I haven't given up, honest. Just had to pause for a while to hunt out the necessary back-Megs and long-forgotten Specials to do justice to...

I only skim-read Armitage after the second or third series*, and couldn't tell you much about the plot of those. I sometimes worried I might be missing out on the strip's transformation into something interesting; thanks for setting my mind at ease.

Thanks also for the insight into what it feels like to belong to a class of people depicted negatively in popular fiction. Pat Mills stories must be hard work for you.


* I think I reengaged sometime during the Young Armitage stories, when there were massive tanks running around and it no longer seemed reasonable to dismiss the strip on the grounds that it was just a Look-In version of a show I didn't watch on telly.

Thank You for this blog and hopefully you can continue with it for a long time.

I am must agree with Frank that Armitage was not that interesting.

Armitage joins Tor Cyan in my list of characters with unachieved potential.

The Sean Phillips painted original story is still awesome though.
