...was a mite uncalled for.

A little, perhaps. I must be the first person on this forum to ever take someone's words to their logical if improbable conclusion in order to make a rhetorical point. I'm amazed it's never happened before.

I would also dispute "aggressive" here, but even if it is (and it certainly wasn't intended as such) one data point doesn't make a pattern, which is what I'm objecting to Richard claiming.

For people looking forward to Zaucer of Zilk returning ,here is an interview with Brendan McCarthy and on the last point he talks about Zilk:

Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

Cheers, bud. McCarthy's a fascinating character and a world-class artist.

If you a fan of McCarthy you can always try out "Dream Gang" (written and drawn by him).

McCarthy wrote and drew a wonderful Spiderman/Doctor Strange team-up called Fever which is well worth a look

Found it on Comixology: https://www.comixology.com/Spider-Man-Fever/digital-comic/492155?ref=c2VyaWVzL3ZpZXcvZGVza3RvcC9ncmlkTGlzdC9jb21peG9sb2d5VW5saW1pdGVk

I love all of the above, although I'm not sure I'd recommend them as ripsnorting narratives. McCarthy's solo work is best enjoyed as decompressed variations on his Artoons; a series of wonderful images, ideas and evocative phrases.

Tharg's wise to pair McCarthy with structure-monkeys. Kek-W seems like a natural fit for McCarthy's psychotropic aesthetic, but I can see why their differing outlooks on life might make a working relationship too interesting to prove productive.

All true, but god bless the editor who let McCarthy do his take on Kirby-era Dr Strange cosmic shit
