Armitages last outing, Underground, was basically a pretty good Dredd story with top tier Patrick Goddard art.
If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.

Thanks also for the insight into what it feels like to belong to a class of people depicted negatively in popular fiction. Pat Mills stories must be hard work for you.

You'd think, wouldn't you, but it's really only with Greysuit that Mills has got me down. I would say that it's very easy to know that one is bracketed with a particular class but also to think 'but they're not really talking about me, I don't have that kind of money or those connections, I'm not like that at all...'

In other Pat Mills-baiting traits, I'm also a practicing Christian and regular churchgoer - but Nemesis the Warlock remains my all-time favourite series. Who knows, if I hadn't found 2000AD at an impressionable age, I might be an insufferable evangelical type, so thank Mills for that escape.

Back on topic, for anyone who hasn't read the two-volume Hachette Armitage collection, I recommend them both, although only for half the stories in each, roughly.

Can't believe you've done 115 of these now - always a fascinating read and an invaluable resource thereafter. Congratulations and keep up the great work!

What Dan said. Always enjoyable. What gets me is the level of detail, no short-cuts taken and interesting regardless of the creator involved ! In short, they're all worth a read...

Thanks all for the moral support!
And also to Karl Stock for getting a name-check in this month's Megazine.


You guys did read the obit for Michael Fleisher, didn't you..?

Next up, an artist who may, at this point, be more famous in the US than the UK...
