Here's everyone's favourite forgotten editor-turned writer from the 1990s,
Peter Hogan

A very enjoyable read. I'd pretty much forgotten about Hogan's Run on Robo-Hunter and was completely unaware that Ridgway had ever drawn Strontium Dog.

I did like this amusingly Freudian typo:
Quote from: Heroes of 2000AD
Tharg-in-Chief Steve MacManus was hard at work prepping The Judge Dredd Megazine, basically designing tit to be 2000AD for grownups.

I've completely forgotten about that!

That's what inspired Brit Cit Babes then?

Seems like the sort of typo I should just leave hanging!

Revival time for the forum thread that remains the only place I advertise my blog!

Last week I uploaded Karl Richardson, as some folks have seen:
http://heroesof2000ad.blogspot.co.uk/2018/04/no-107-karl-richardson.html

This week here's the outrageously prolific INJ Culbard. At the time I first compiled my stats on 'how many progs has s/he contributed to', Culbard had completed just one book of Brass Sun. When I wrote up this post several months ago, he was up to 96 already. But now he's way into the 100s! I care about these things.

Anyway, here's my analysis of the man's Thargian body of work:
http://heroesof2000ad.blogspot.co.uk/2018/04/no-108-inj-culbard.html

I'll try to keep to a weekly schedule from here - too many creators out there who need more love on the internet, especially for their 2000AD output. That said, next week there's a chap who's probably more famous, at this point, for his later stuff...

Ah Frank, you always know how to bring a smile to my face!  :lol:
It's a toss-up whether I bother to fix that particular typo...

Running late already, but here's Mr Lee Carter for your grunge-tastic enjoyment:

Notable characteristics:
Georgeous realism. Astonishing Ugliness. An impressively grim imagination. And, something very specific in the way he draws people’s faces. They’re kind of bumpy, with fleshy jowls and rugged chins ... painfully detailed rendering of the human form, often merged or surrounded by some horrifically weird goings on, tinged with depravity.

I’m pretty sure he used real-world photos – often of deliberately seedy or squalid places, presumably that he took himself – which really help get the tone right. Carter’s people, whether photo-derived or not, are very much comics-art people, with a hint of otherworldliness to their face and skin


Lee Carter is from Hartlepool.

There’s surely more than one Lee Carter in the UK. But might this piece of reader art from the early 90s be the work of the same man? It’s pretty damn good for fan art!


Fantastic analysis, Alex, with attention to detail appropriate to and redolent of your subject matter.

Lee Carter confirmed the reader drawing from 758 (Nov 1991) is his work. That was posted from his monkey-hanging hometown, but by 822 (Feb 1993) he'd moved somewhere that sounded more like his surname*

There are similarities in the pose and elements of the uniform - especially the eagle, which is like a fingerprint for artists, rarely changing from their debut - but the Clwyd image features the signature combination of chin, jowels and grimly set mouth described in your post:



* On no account perform a general google search on the word Cartrefle, unless you want to become deeply despondent about human nature.

Cheers AlexF, that was awesome of you, really enjoyed it, have to admit I've been hoping I would make it on the site  :),
  Both readers art are mine, one must have been sent while I was at college in Wales :)
  Thankfully I quickly got better :)
Thanks again :)
