Wow! Love it.

You know, if I was Dan Dare in the Grant Morrison story, I'd nearly be happy to be... never mind.

Having had the good fortune to meet Ian (twice!) and get his book off him, I can confirm his 'sketches' are amazing, and he has various price points, to use a crappy work phrase.

I have asked for a complete year of Valiant from 1967 and Lion from 1971, I believe Santy/Mary (ie me) has already deposited them under the tree. :)

Ian's book is here, pricey but brilliant https://www.dcthomsonshop.co.uk/the-art-of-ian-kennedy

I asked Santa for a fully painted page of Ron Smith Dredd, but Santa allowed me to be outbid in the last ten seconds.  :(

So I said ‘Sod you then Santa, I’m going to treat myself to the Black Series Red 5 helmet with £30 off on Amazon currently.’

Saw Ian’s Mekon on his Instagram account, great stuff.
Santa was good to me, youngest son bought me a rubber duck Dredd.... nice.
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference and the promise of an early bed

Without conspiring or colluding, my family kitted me out head to toe in thermals: ace hat from my son, undershirt and leggings from the in-laws and gloves and ski socks from my brother and S-i-L. Well chuffed, if not chapped. Although possibly a hint that I moan about the weather too much.
