Third Phil Bond back in the Prog - wayhey!
This is the important thing really. Everything else is irrelevant.

Like most of the background aliens, he's named for obvious physical descriptors, i.e. he has (Th)ree (E)ye(e)s.
Well I never.  Do you have any other examples?  I'd always assumed SW names were kind of random - except, of course, when they sound like something cool like 'Solo' or 'Fortuna', or something nasty like 'Rancor' or 'Salacious'.
Snaggletooth. Hammerhead. Walrus Man. And that's before you've even left the cantina.

Which just goes to show the continued importance of patent nonsense to the tourist industry. Bring it on,  says I, to be sure to be sure.
I sympathise. Visitors to Scotland are now herded around Outlander and Harry Potter locations, and see little else. Apparently it's what they want.
Ha. I was about to comment that the pub in the village where I grew up is basically kept alive doing lunches for bus tours visiting Outlander locations. Damn fools don't even realise part of Restless Natives was filmed on the other side of the hill!

The figure in the suit looks almost Charles Burns-esque.
Not sure about that but he definitely looks like he's just had the old Steel Claw up his cleft.

Easiest one so far. Steve Yeowell.

Ron Smith.

A nasty pairing but it’s got to be Henry Flint.

Simon Harrison.

Quite interesting that 75% of the stuff on that list was previously in the Extreme Editions.

Obviously digital doesn't mean only digital and it doesn't mean at the expense of other physical volumes. To be honest, it's nice to see then actually promote their digital only collections for once. Word of the previous ones seemed to slip out despite the best efforts of Rebellion!

Well they did omit something and that the fact that Rebellion is reprinting this rather excellent prose novel 'The Fictional Man' in 2021. If you've not read it I'd defo recommend it
Getting back to the topic, the series Al wrote for one of Rebellion's shared universe things about the Mexican superhero lad was pretty entertaining but The Fictional Man was genuinely good sci-fi that I should dig out again.

I get people being disappointed with the overall plot of Hershey - but did you really not enjoy the craft of the way it was told? I can get lost in Fraser's art all day.
No. I agree that the art was absolutely stellar in places but everything else about the whole enterprise was flawed to such an extent that I couldn't enjoy it. I do always fall on the side that poor art is less damaging to a good story than vice versa.

Overall the New Year line up looks extremely weak to me. I don't enjoy Carroll's Dredd; Proteus Vex was alright but the main attraction was Henry Flint; Hershey see above; Slaine see above re story vs art; Durham Red lets see maybe a longer run will let Worley do some of that wordy horror stuff he used to be good at.

The second pick from this one is very difficult. First is obviously Siku. There's no one quite like him and his use of colour in particular sets him apart from every other artist.

Big fan of John McCrea but checking it he's done comparitively little for Tharg. So for style and amassing a solid body of work in a short timeframe it's got to be Frazer Irving.

Leigh Gallagher was an artist who seemed to leap fully formed onto the page. There's not anything I can criticise about the first series of Defoe.

Love the moody atmosphere Jimi Broxton brings to Hope.

Lee Carter's early work was technically proficient but marred by awkwardly posed figures and a general stiffness. He's grown and overcome that and his Indigo Prime stuff with John Smith in particular is a beautiful synthesis of human and sci-fi wizardry.

Neil Googe is clearly having fun.

Torn here. Steve Parkhouse would be through in most other groups. His expressive b&w cartooning would be enough on its own but add in the beautiful colour work he did on Summer Magic and, you know what, he gets my vote and Phillips loses out.

Glenn Fabry is the only artist to draw leather better than Bolland.
