Aye, a real shock to see this news pop up in my feed today.

Brett was responsible for some of my absolute favourite stories. And ive been lucky enough to have gotten some of his original art, which again, are some of my very favourite pieces.

Such a shame. RIP.

A very sad day for me,I grew up reading Bad Company amongst others. Artists like Brett ensured my future as a reader of comics.

It's heartbreaking to see such news...
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.

He's Mega City 1's own Don Juan.

Shocked to see this; it is very sad news.

Brett was one of my all time favourite 2000AD artists. Not just for Bad Company but also Dredd, Anderson and ABC Warriors. A true legend of the house of Tharg in my opinion.

Such terrible, terrible news. Brett was one of 2000ad' s legendary artists. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.

Was sad to see this news on twitter, has made me reflect on the past... Brett Ewins' work on Judge Anderson, Dredd and Skreemer was such a distinct style yet readily accessible.

Rest In Peace

Although I had bought the occasional prog before I started buying 2000AD every week with Prog 359 which featured Brett's artwork on the Dredd story The Haunting Of Sector House 9 and he became one of my favourite artists

That's such a shame, I hope he's at peace. A true 200ad legend with an unmistakable style - sleep well Brett, you did good.

Terribly sad news. At his peak a tremendously inventive artist and great talent whose art was always distinctive. Condolences to Brett's family and friends. RIP
