dweezil - Ian Kennedy drew a few gems for 2000AD; I posted the bit below on a 'Favourite Future Shocks' thread ages ago:

"I had to look it up on this site, because I couldn't remember the name, but The Collector (prog 210) is an all time favourite (Kelvin Gosnell script and Ian Kennedy on art duties) - that 'air base hell' one, you know."

Also the fantastic wraparound cover of the Luftwaffe in the Big Meg

Cheers for that! I remember that cover very well.
I'll have to dig out Prog 210 and have a look.
Thanks again for posting the info!

Oh, and the image of Peter Jones, is the image I meant to post.
He's not an actor, he's a businessman (and *star* of tv-shows such as Dragon's Den), and he looks like Dan Dare.
Cheers

"...and he looks like Dan Dare."

An evil Treen clone, possibly.

Didn't care for that preview much.  A very clumsy evocation of a certain type of England for Ennis - actually read a bit like Troubled Souls, which is a step back for a man with such a good ear for dialogue.   The art looks quite nice, but IMHO the perspective is pretty poor - people appear to be floating in the backgrounds, and why does that statue appear to be at silly mid-off?.  Christopher Lee as Digby is a bit odd too.

Bottom line:  Why isn't Chris Weston drawing this anyway?
