Very sad news. As others, fond and clear memories of copying Brett's art back in the 80's (Rogue for me). RIP.

loveforstitch - Does he fall in love? I like a little romance in all my movies.

Rekaert - Yes, he demonstrates it with bullets, punches and sentencing.

Terrible news. Always admired his take on Judge Anderson amongst his many brilliant works. Heart felt condolences to his family and his colleagues at 2000AD.

Awful news. May he rest in peace.

Me too.  Bad Company made a very, very profound impact on me as a child.  See you, Brett, you'll be much missed.

Just popped in to express my sadness at Brett's death. His work also had a real impact on me as many have already said, especially Bad Company. Wish I'd have been able to shake his hand and thank him for all the pleasure his work has given me over the years.

To tell the truth, you can all get screwed.

Nothing I can say right now will add much to what others have said.

I was writing a blog entry when I found out. Needless to say I don't feel like doing a review right now.

Deeply, deeply sad.

Legendary singer-songwriter Lesley Gore, who is behind some of the biggest teenage anthems ever, such as  "It's My Party" passed away from lung cancer in New York City earlier today. She was 68.

Also upset on the news of Brett Ewin's passing away, a great influence of on the early years of 2000AD & part of my childhood
