I'll have to dig out last year's Scream! and Misty to re-read the Sentinels!

Get her in the Prog and slap some laurels on the cover, Thargy baby, she's a keeper.


As a complete side note,  it always amazes me how 2000AD collections fail to trumpet their more famous creators. The DR&Quinch/Skizz Mega-Collection, for example - 200 pages of Alan Moore, one of the Top 5 most famous comics writers of all time* (yes,  I'm including Stan Lee :rolleyes:) never mind art by Alan Davis (ye and I know the Baikie Skizz is some of the greatest comics art ever,  but the average US comics afficianado not so much...) - and yet this info is almost hidden in the usual trade dress.  Wouldn't it have made sense for Hachette to tart up the cellophane wrapper with giant sized 200 PAGES OF MOORE and DAVIS for a TENNER?   If you've got it,  flaunt it.


*Lee,  Gaiman,  Herg√©, Moore, Miller, would be my guess. Maybe Schultz and Watterson too,  but does anyone remember their names these days?
