Good list, but I was more thinking of living artists.

Ah well, you did say *wish* list ;-)

Pollock's still alive. Not sure what strip he'd be best at. He did a graphic novel of King Lear in the eighties. He'd probably do an interesting Nemesis.

 True, we're spoiled with ten pages of Steve Moore every week.

William Gibson

Moorcock has written comix, you know... I've got a book with his (incomprehensible) adventures of Jerry Cornelius comic collected, and then there was 'Multivers', which was a major disappointment.

If I remember correctly, he actually stated out writing boy's adventure comics in the early 60s.

Adventures of Jerry Cornelius comes from his Cornelius short stories and I can understand you using the word "incomprehensible" his Cornelius stuff can be hard to get a grip on. The Hawkmoon, Erekose, Elrick, Corum Etc. stuff is much more accessible but still has a lot of really good ideas.

Moorcock Tangent

Actually, I really like the Cornelius stuff best of all, because it does have a bizarre kind of sense to it. The comic strip is just bonkers, though. It's like, how not to do a comic strip. At all.

My favourite Moorcock books are the Oswald Bastable ones.

Anyway, as for the wish list... how about getting Brendan MacArthy back? I know it's a bit of a cheat... ;)

Or what about Peter Chung (the Aeon Flux guy)? He'd be ace. I've got all the Aeon Flux shows on video. They're brilliant.

yep, michael started out writing & editting 'tarzan adventures' in his late teens.

as i was walking home from the train last night i realised that both rucker & sterling were both saddly missing from my wish list.

i'd also like to add:--
terry bisson
harold waldrop, jr
jeanette winterson
vaughan oliver
margaret fiedler
andi tomas &/or jan st werner

that'll do for now

Is anyone else fucking lost with these lists?

I got most of Nathans list.
With the exception of William Gibson and Douglass Coupland(both excelent propositions)and kinda Aoen Flux(known by reputation only), I was lost every thing else so far.

Anyway,
William Gibson would be excellent if you could find the right artist

Coupland I'd say would be up for a comics gig (see the illustrations in Generation X).

I think what 2000ad needs right now are some consistant humour writers, Bill Bailey is hillarious live and would be able to bang out a good Future Shock, a story about foxes hunting voles on the back of pigs begs to be written.

Me too, I've never heard of most of 'em.  But when it comes to SF I'm a bit of an ignoramus.

Has anyone suggested Ben Bova? Don't know what his books are like but what a brilliant name.
