Neil’s ink style remains as close to actual magic as any artist’s I can think of. The sheer density of lines achieving so much variation of texture and lighting baffles me. It’s quite brilliant.

Did they?  Don't remember that storyline?

Did the GIs choose to fight…?

I assume it's cheaper to have a painted actor but maybe a CGI Rogue would be better.

Are those the only two options? Would it not be possible to tweak the skin colour of a real actor as part of the digital grading process? (Genuinely curious, not being snarky.)

Would this not be the CGI/quasi animated style of Warcraft?

With Rogue’s near-zero brand recognition amongst the general public, I’d expect the budget to be quite a bit smaller than Warcraft’s…

How would you get the tippex off (if whoever owns the page now lets you)?

Bryan Talbot had high quality stats made of his originals before sending them in, and had those used for at least some of the reprints of his Nemesis work, reinstating some of the missing gore. (He had side-by-side comparisons at a Luther Arkwright signing I remember going to about a million years ago.)

He has a keen visual eye and flair for sure, but nothing that translates into an interesting movie, for me at least.

Hence the suggestion that he's in desperate need of a good screenplay…

Surely the great bearded one wouldn't have a problem with selling this to Tharg so someone else could pick up the baton so to speak?

In the past, Moore's basic position in any discussion of 2000AD work has always started with "Give me Halo Jones back." I suspect this is more for devilment on the part of the Bard of Northampton, and is just his way of saying "No, never" but it amuses him to pretend that there are circumstances where he might consider it, but attaches them to a demand he knows will never be accepted.

Have you seen "Chappie"?!

No, but what Elysium convinced me of is that he’s a potentially brilliant director in dire need of a great script. If there’s a spark of what Neumeier and Miner brought to the first movie left in this screenplay, it might be the one.

Although volunteering a story written by the best writer in the world as an example of how easy it would be to turn ABC Warriors into a sandbox for creators gave me a laugh.

Pretty sure I didn’t say that. I simply mentioned that it was my favourite ABC Warriors story — there aren’t a lot of non-Mills entries into that canon to choose from, for obvious reasons. Maybe John Smith could have given us a cracking ABC Warriors tale, but we’ll never know.

God. If there was ever a director who might make me feel kindly disposed towards a new Robocop movie, it’s Blomkamp. It’s got his sensibilities written all over it. I can’t believe I didn’t see that before.

The exploitation of work by others without compensation being the reason for the remarks under discussion.

I wonder if John Wagner's on a percentage of that colouring book…

Supportive like this thread you mean?

How is that in any way relevant to the subject under discussion?

I'm thinking "Eugh!" at this point, too, but not at the Phoenix. FFS.

Given that it wouldn't have been 'Young Slaine', unless there was a serious proposal to license the character to The Phoenix I never heard about, is Pat now claiming to have ownership over 'all barbarian stories with a Celtic flavour'…?!

For the avoidance of further misunderstanding, Mills recently posted that he's sought and received assurances that nobody else will be writing characters he created.

That's from 19th of May and considerably predates this latest Rico kerfuffle, though, suggesting the issue might not be completely settled.

Also worth noting that assigning Smith’s authorial voice to someone else’s character gave us what is near-universally regarded as the best Rogue Trooper story, whilst ‘Red Planet Blues’ remains my favourite ABC Warriors story by some margin.
