Has to be Cam for me (and a nice choice of Rogue page for the example here - the first page of original art I bought!).

That is a great piece to own.

Oh man, that's hard.  I actually preferred Brett's Rogue to Cam's, and his ridiculously sexy young Anderson is still my favourite Anderson.

But there's no Mega City like Cam's.  Sunday Night Fever and Supersurf 7 will always be the perfect Dredd strips for me, artwise, so I'm giving this one to Kenny Who?.

Exactly what Jayzus just said, although you could add in The Taxidermist,  The Falucci Tape, The Suspect, Cardboard City, The Big Sleep and Adrian Cockroach into the 'perfect' list.

So much as I love Ewins, it's always Cam for me.

Add in The Warlord and Finger of Suspicion and we're getting there...

Brett Ewins work is archetypal 2000AD imagery. It's future-punk anarchy. Love it, but I'm not voting against Cam Kennedy. As has been mentioned, Kennedy's future war stuff in Rogue Trooper and VCs really is top notch. Could he have done Bad Company as well as Ewins iconic effort? Yeah, I reckon he definitely could have. Ewins Rogue is very good (who can forget his version of Venus Bluegenes?), but not quite at Kennedy's level. I can't quite see a Kennedy version of Anderson Psi Division being better than Ewins's, but it wouldn't be far off. Ewins could have done some sweet skysurfer designs, but the flow of the action would never have matched Kennedy's Midnight Surfer. A Ewins version of The Taxidermist would not have been at the races at all, I reckon. Kennedy's mixture of humour and pathos is perfect as was also demonstrated in stories like Two Ton Tony Tubbs, and Kenny Who?.

In summary, Cam Kennedy is my pick here.

Cam's the man!
An old-school, no-bullshit, boys-own action/adventure comic reminiscent of the 2000ads and Eagles and Warlords and Battles and other glorious black-and-white comics that were so, so cool in the 70's and 80's - Buy the hardback Christmas Annual!

Not an easy one, but I do love Cam’s unique look. Especially on Dredd and Rogue. So that’s my vote.
