Sweet feckin Jesus, would ye ever just turn off your computers and go outside?

"I only said I dun gone outside so they wouldn't give me another jalfrezi enema!"

I really miss Monkey Dust the world could really do with the program right now!
Sadly due to Harry Thompsons death due to lung cancer (he wasn't even a smoker apparently, utterly tragic) it seems the most under rated animated comedy will remain in it's cult statues.

Also I suspect theres zero chance of seasons 2 and 3 getting a dvd release after 15 years.

Yeah, I'd read that he'd passed away-tragic!  :(
Crying shame too, that those two seasons are unlikely to be released! :'(
Caustic satire of the highest calibre!  :thumbsup:

Yeah, I worked on S3 - I never met Harry, but he was well regarded.

The follow-up was going to be a spin-off based on the Brummie Jihadis, but even without Harry's untimely death, the 2005 attacks would have made it impossible to make at that time.

There are a few of those BBC Choice/Three comedy programmes which have slipped through the cracks - don't think Monkey Dust or The Wrong Door are even available on iplayer.

There's a reason he gets a halo on Pete Well's defacing of any Southern Contingent photos.

Rat Pack, Major Eazy, Comrade Bronski I think are the major ones from IPC.

Guess it depends how well El Mestizo sold.

Carlos also did some early work for DC Thomson with Chained to his Sword and Strongbow, but Rebellion wouldn't have any control over that.

If John ever wanted to write his autobiography, maybe he could Nimoy it and call it 'I am not Drokk'

To be fair to Tharg, there’s a world of difference between a key creator, alongside Ezquerra’s family, saying “actually, they should continue this” versus continuing a strip created by two people who want nothing further to do with 2000 AD, and who would be against such a thing happening.

I think Matt Smith has acted honourably and respectfully on this issue. Ultimately, he could have said “well, Strontium Dog is very popular, and so we’re going to be doing new stories”, but he didn’t. Even now, the only new thing we’ve had has been a Regened semi-reboot episode, and the Stix story. Perhaps they were intended to test the water; I dunno. But it’s an unenviable position to be in, because whatever choice is made, it’ll annoy some people.

I believe Chris said the Stix story had Carlos' blessing.

I don't have an easy answer on this - I guess if you're going to do it, it would be preferable to have a single artist on a run at least if not for the new creative team, at least to make their mark. Rather than ABC Warriors it with an artist here, and an artist there.

The record on new creative teams taking over characters is patchy to say the least though.

Up until now, and for those reasons it seemed best to leave it be, but if it doesn't work out it's not going to erase what I've enjoyed over the decades, and considering I've worked on fanfic at John's request and with Carlos' blessing, I'd be a bit hypocritical to object to someone else doing the same, even if they are getting paid to do it.

Good luck with it Ian, I've posted it on the Minty fb group.

More fool them.

Shows how privileged we've been over her to be able to sit in the pub and natter with 2000 AD creators.

Also some rights on Terrameks (or at least IPC only had first publishing rights) - there was another thing somewhere which seemed to imply that Strontium Dog was initially going to be creator owned, or appeared as such in Starlord before management got wind of it.

A month or so ago I had a meetup with Steve S and Lauren just to have a bit of fun with the new Rogue Trooper helmet.

Ostensibly to flog the helmets, but since they sold out in 9 mins, the photos have been kicking around.

Anyway starting to work up a few.

Dredd: Year One I'd describe as if you were doing a movie Dredd on a decent budget, or if you wanted a good intro to the strip without all the baggage.

Great Simon Coleby art too.
