Mega City 1 comedy doesn't get much better than that, does it?  I miss Al.

I haven't missed an issue of Viz for about 25 years. Though that's kind of a comic, I suppose, isn't it?

Steve Sampson almost purely for his work on a Tyranny Rex one-off in a (I think) Sci-Fi special about an assassination contract on a bunch of mafioso/fashion designers.

There's a 99.9% chance I own that comic, but cannot for the life of me recollect Sampson drawing Tyranny Rex.

I remember that one - had some very risque scenes of Tyranny, er, giving a man a hand with something.  Mind you, that special also had a page 3-style topless Anderson pin-up (with some conveniently placed ghosts).


But back to the matter at hand - Well, I love a lot of the artists on that list. Siku was amazing in fully-painted mode and John McCrea's flowing, madcap pen-and-ink style is a thing of beauty.  Incidentally, when did he upset Tharg?

But it's going to be Frazer Irving and Jose Ortiz for me.

A far less witty take on the same subject, but it made me laugh out loud (and Gary Sambrook really is a daft fecker for drawing attention to it).

Always said no good would come from the Stella showing those furren pictures with all the quare wans.

I watched The General there, without realising at the time that most of it had happened about two minutes' walk down the road.

  Also, and I may well be alone here, but I'll give a vote to Cat Sullivan - quietly brilliant work over years and years and although understandably overshadowed by multi-page Thrills, Droid Life is a little gem.

You're not alone.  He's brilliant - effortlessly clean and fluid linework, and an ability to wring emotions out of characters who don't even have proper faces.   Cat for me.

And Tom Foster - blasphemy it may be, but I actually prefer him to Bolland.  The kind of copperplate-etching style of moody, noirish artwork I wish I could do myself.

I love Rufus's stuff, so Rufus.  And I like Roach too, so him.

Definitely Bisley - his Heavy Metal Dredd stuff was a bit rubbish, yes, but the ABCs and Sláine just blew my tiny mind at the time, and put 2000ad on the European continental map at least.

Now, Talbot or Baikie.  My grud, that's tough.  Talbot's Nemesis was amazing, but I'm thinking of the final few episodes of Oz, the Hit, and Skizz - I'm going to say Baikie and be damned.

Ah, my hopes were up there.  I believe that if you put Wagner's name on his Dredd stories, nobody would know the difference.  I also think he's written some of the best Dredd stories ever, including Wagner ones.

Congrats to you, Funt. I'm still winning, though.

Though 7793 posts isn't that impressive when I realise I've been here for almost 20 years  :o :o

I had a few posts before that too though, as my former board self Jayzus B. Christ (with spaces).

Looking at the voting record, only one DUP vote was cast, and so I won’t be giving them that much credit. Had they all thrown their lot in with Labour, that would have been more impressive. I suppose at least they were smart enough to let the Tories own this one alone.

Fair point. It's easy to ride the public opinion bandwagon after the public have already spoken.
