All good wishes to Pete Doherty.
Loved watching him develop from Young Death and Justice 1 - both stories elevated by his art, to a truly world class artist (the early episodes of Judgment Day were stunning drawing me into the story despite its shortcomings).
Looking forward to the next Mega Collection - hoping for both Roadkill and Old Wounds.
Not surprised in the least that people speak so well of him, somehow that warmth seems to permeate his work.

2016 really needs a kicking. Here's hoping Peter Doherty fully recovers.

Fuck. Hope he's conscious soon and recovers quickly - only just saw him at Thought Bubble :O He's an incredible talent and kind and supportive as anything.  :'(

Hoping for a swift and full recovery for Peter, as well as a great artist he was a wonderful host of the panel at NICE this year, and a pleasure to listen to.

His mother has posted on facebook that he is unconcious in intensive care in Sheffield after an operation for a torn aorta. His daughter Hope Doherty is collecting messages from fans on facebook and taking them to her father.

Aw how awful, poor Peter! Not only a great and unique storyteller who emerged at a time when such were in short supply, but a masterful colourist too.  Every best wish and all my hopes for a full and rapid recovery.

Crap! all the best Peter.

As far as that Dante teaser, did he ever wear a sword when he had his blades ? If not it would have to be pre crest or post crest.

No dress uniform is complete without a sword even if it's not going to be used!

And here he is on the cover of the first collection:
We never really die.

Hope Mr Doherty recovers soon.

Funnily enough I was re-reading Young Death again the other day and thinking about what a great job he did with that story. He's one of the finest artists to have worked on the prog, in my opinion.

Dante had a sword before he got the bio blades. And had one in times of ceremony until the death of crest when he went back to using a sword
