: Have I missed any 1st appearances by notable artists/writers?
: matty_ae 07 April, 2018, 06:50:45 PM
Hi guys
I'm trying to get signatures in order of appearance in the prog.
So far I've got the signatures of (almost) everyone on the convention circuit who contributed to progs 1 - 26

But to your knowledge is there anyone else missing from 1st appearances in the first 600 progs

So far on my list to get is...

2 Gerry Finley Day
11 Brian Bolland
14 Ian Gibson Dredd

25 John Higgins
33 Brendan McCarthy / Brett Ewins
101 Alan Grant Futureshock
104 Ron Smith
142 Cam Kennedy VCs
170 Alan Moore
189 Steve Dillion
228 1ST APP ROGUE TROOPER
257 Bryan Talbot
287 Alan Davis / Harry Rock
362 Cliff Robinson
372 Mike Collins Futureshock + Mark Famer
376 1ST APP HALO JONES
410 Glenn Fabry Slaine Time Killers
555 Bisley ABC Warriors
651 David Hine Dredd Pin up
873 Clint Langley Dinosty

Anyone else? There's some I've left off as I just don't think they do the rounds i.e. Angie Kincaid but I'd take your advice if you think that's not the case

We'd also need to know whose signatured you already have to know who else is missing.  Good list though!  I'm surprised by how early Cliff Robinson, Mike Collins and Mark Farmer appeared, as I've always thought of those as 'new' creators, even though I'd only been buying the prog every single week for three months when Cliff's work first appeared.  Colin MacNeil isn't there, but perhaps he's someone you've already met?

So far (at the 40th) I got everyone there who contributed to progs 1 - 26 so:

John Wagner
Pat Mills
Kev O'Neill (gosh night before)
Steve McManus
Ian Kennedy
Jack Adrian / Chris Lowder
Carlos Ezquerra
Dave Gibbons
Mike McMahon
Jesus Redondo

Figure I can get Ian Gibson at Lawgiver

Thanks Jim. That's helpful. I'm not sure if I'm on a foolish task on this one.
But I'm going to try!
