Did anybody mention Mike Stott yet?

Is he Ken Niemand?

What about Ken Stott?

Ideally Ken is real and is reading this tearing his hair out   ;)

My vote's for Al.
If it's Neil I'll give you the money meself.

Ken certain does read this.
If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.

I don’t think George Elliot wrote this week’s Judge Dredd. She died in 1880.

I believe I, Cosh’s point is that Kenneth Neimand is, most likely, a pseudonym, just like George Eliot.

Yeah I got that, in fact I called it a "nom de plume" in my original post. Cosh's point was that George Eliot was a male pseudonym for a female writer. And the point of that was to pull me up on my original assumption that the person behind the Neimand name was a man. My point was to purposefully misunderstand him (or maybe Cosh is a her - Jesus I won't be making that mistake again) and pretend he was actually claiming that George Eliot actually is Neimand and wrote this week's Dredd. You know, as a joke.

I’ve been ill... A lot of things have been going over my head.

In a very real sense, we’re all Ken Niemand now.

Maybe, like Dredd, he will never be unmasked. Oh, the delicious irony.

Sneak peek at next issue’s Dredd. It’s all gone a bit too in-jokey, sadly.

I'm lost. There's one boarder who I know is called Ken but I think I'm missing something.  I love Thistle one though.

I think I'm missing something.

Recent Dredd stories* have been credited to Kenneth Niemand, leading to speculation concerning the identity of the author.

The stories are well-written enough that the author is clearly not a newcomer to comics and the level of engagement with the concepts and themes at the heart of the strip suggest they're unlikely to be a first time Dredd writer either.

As demonstrated by the list of 2000ad pseudonyms above, the writers most likely to employ pen names are members of editorial staff wishing to conceal their connection to the publisher, but both Nerve Centre employees with scripting experience have stated they're not Niemand.

The list of writers who've scripted Dredd for 2000ad is still pretty short, and the Niemand stories published so far don't exhibit the stylistic tics or thematical concerns of any of them. Niemand's either an infrequent contributor or an established author switching to Southpaw.

One theory posits a former freelancer currently enjoying success in US comics, but I'm not sure I've ever read that particular author write anything as rank as Block Buds (2113-2114).  Fun exercise, though.
