I'm legally obliged to post this link  :D

-and it's still the number 2 listing on Google when I type in 'Cliff Robinson 2000AD' which is ample proof the  man doesn't get the love he deserves!

His covers really are wonderful, although I think it's important to give a fair bit of credit to Dylan Teague, who has been colouring them for maybe a decade at this point - brings a lot to the already substantial textures. Absolutely agree that Robinson's design sense at this point outshines Bolland when it comes to Dredd.

His strips often contained some stunning panels; I love the way he draws water gushing down on people e.g. in the one Game Show (of Death) story.

Yes, I mentioned that (debut) Dredd story too, when I covered it.

My Grud, I'd forgotten how brilliantly awful that panel was.  No wonder I turned out the way I did.

As a matter of interest, is he actually Tharg's longest-serving active art droid?  Can't think of anyone who's been around longer.
John Higgins' debut prog was 108 (yes, that surprised me, too!).

Actually, if you include John's covers then his first 2000AD work was Prog 43!! - Now that's 'proper old school'.

Why not, though, I suppose.  John and Pat are still writing.  The Stones are still touring.
