Here's another hero who, in my head, is a newcomer to Tharg's droid shelter, but has actually been delivering scripts for more than a decade at this point. We are all getting old!

Catching up but wanted to stop by, not just to once again hail your superb blog but to salute the criminally under used Nigel Dobbyn.

I've always really loved his work and find it astonishing that he's not done more for Tharg. I get the description that his art is friendly and suspect that's part the reason he feel out of favour. To me though your description of the fact that this can make thigns more horrific hits the nail on the head. There are any number of strips in the last few years that I think would have been elevated by his art.

I'm lucky enough to own a three page sequence from the first Medivac 318 series when the nursey is supporting a wounded soldier while waiting for a pick up. Its beautiful, haunting and some atmospheric. I adore those pages and remember them from the day I first read them as being so atypical of 2000ad and yet therefore so 2000ad. Just glorious.

A full return for ACE Trucking is surely needed and Dobbyn's is perfect for the series... or any number of others!

If there was any justice, Tharg would have let him write that 101 Gronks strip that he pitched!

Well, Tooth's loss was STC's gain - his artwork on the Knuckles solo series was truly something special to behold. He and Richard Elson were the Mcmahon/ Ezquerra of that comic.

And you have to love the guy for his very 'punk' handling of the final Red Razors episode, if nothing else!

From the horses mouth a few weeks ago; "My Durham Red wasn't sexy enough".

Always loved his stuff, and it would be insane not to utilise his talent again in 2000AD or the Meg.

It came up on one of the facebook groups, but which artist has contributed the most Dredd's?  Carlos is the number one artist generally, but that's going to be split between Dredd, Strontium Dog, Stainless Steel Rats and Third World Wars (can't remember if you count Crisis).

Have I got a post for you!
Way back in the early days of ther blog I had a go at answering this very question...

http://heroesof2000ad.blogspot.co.uk/2015/04/interlude-dreddcount-part-2_29.html

And the answer is either Carlos or Ron Smith, depending on wether or not you count the Daily Star Dredd (I generally don't in my opverall counts), and how much an episode of that is 'worth' compared to an episode of Dredd in the Prog/Meg. (And yes, I do count Crisis, as well as Starlord and Tornado.)

In terms of overall art contributions to the Prog, it's definitely Carlos, with a current count of 1,059 progs/Megs. 2nd to him is still Massimo Belardinelli, with 490, even though his last Prog was decades ago now! Nearest of the current active artists to chase that figure is Steve Yeowell, currently up to 439 Progs/Megs.

I am intrigued that although 2000AD has long been and continues to champion new British artists (a good thing for sure!), it's two Europeans who are by some margin the Prog's longest-serving heroes.

Thanks, that matched the general consensus.
