Cheers, Frank.  I remember thinking Dan Abnett was John Wagner for a short while - pre SinDex obviously but I can't remember what he wrote. I also thought Kek-W was Mark Millar.

Dan Abnett does have one of those maybe-made-up names...

And I did think Jamie Delano was the then-ubiquitous Alan Moore. Pretty sure I read that somewhere, and just went along with it. Whatever happened to Delano anyway...?

I also thought Kek-W was Mark Millar.

Me too, for obvious reasons. I thought it was maybe a situation like Strontium Dogs, where the editor was rewriting the original scripts and Millar had asked to have his name removed.

Obviously, the Kek-W who shows up at signings is just an actor Millar pays to maintain the illusion, like Michael Caine in Without A Clue or Remington Steele.

Writes the occasional novel, probably banks some healthy DC/Warner royalty cheques since Moore got DC to split his share of Constantine royalties 50/50 between himself and Delano.

A good prog again this week.

A very good Dredd, good script (no comments on who is who and nobody cares), good art.

Scarlet Traces is something than needs to be re-read when it is complete. Very enjoyable.

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 thought it was funny. I just didn't come back into the thread until I'd actually read the Prog. Which was decent.

Now that Margaret Atwood writes comics, I'd quite like to see her take on Dredd. Or Jeanette Winterson's ABC Warriors.

Dredd seems far more comfortable bandaged-up in a hospital bed lately, rather than sitting on a lawmaster wielding a daystick.


Like all 80 year-olds, Dredd spends most of his time asleep or recovering from a bad fall:

1873. It was an epilogue to the Titan storyline.

Perhaps the phrase on the cover is less about Anderson and actually advice directed at Dredd...
