Classic artists aside, this would have been an excellent opportunity to give Rufus Dayglo a shot.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I'm in complete agreement with Wake. I'd love to see Rufus drawing some Dredd in either The Meg or 2000AD.

Ithink it would be great to see some pre-2099 Dredd stories, and Rufus would be the perfect artist for these IMO.

Wake, would a petition or a poll to get Rufus drawing Dredd help in any way to get things moving?

Glad that's confirmed. There's so obviously a page missing from that Future Shock.

Probably not. I don't think Tharg likes polls on that kind of thing.

Any chance of getting the page in question (or better, the whole thing) up on the site so we can enjoy it in full?

My proposal to Tharg was:

"What do
you think about putting the full 3 page strip online, and printing an
apology in the next Meg along with a link to the Thrillviewer on the
website."

So do we have to refer to both editors as Tharg?

Be excellent to each other. And party on!

No, but Alan Barnes is on paternity leave, so I can't contact him.

Twins? Why weren't they called Joe & Rico?  Or doesn't Mrs Barnes like Alan taking his work home with him?

Adding a few thoughts very, very late:

I've quite enjoyed seeing Higgins' take on early Dredd.
Remember JH's style of helmet was always very sharp and those rounded ones, with all the other stylistic changes, is a serious departure.

I said last week I wasn't so keen on JH's darker stuff - he's better at more light-hearted tales like Phantom of the Shoppera - but I've quite enjoyed this.

I'm willing to ignore the continuity blip. It's no big deal. The story is a decent tale so far.

Anyway, I fair enjoyed this month's Meg, with Dredd, Darkie and Devlin the main highlights.
It's just a shame - as has been said here before - we're only getting six pages a month of Waugh. It's hard to keep the momentum up, sadly.

Hey David, you're spot on about Apocalypse soon, but I thought of Pratchett's Discworld stuff first. He even had a scene with the Four Horsemen sitting in the pub waiting for the end of the world.

S'true, he does. But I seem to remember a similar meeting in the dustbowl of America in 'G.O.'...
