Isnt it straight from Private Eye's 'Inspector Knacker of the Yard', as a generic referral to the police?


Given the Antipodean connection with the creators I wouldn't be surprised if the title isn't also play on Patricia Wrightson's wonderful 1973 children's novel The Nargun & The Stars which was made into this television miniseries in 1979.

Morrison didn't contest the rights to Zenith until Titan went to reprint  the series following  the appearance of Zzzzenith.com appeared in Prog 2000.

TSo after he met his wife, who is a lawyer.

I bloody love Simon Davis's work, but it can only be Colin MacNeill.

Both Cam & Ron were mainstays on my two least favourite thrills during the Golden Age of the Eighties: Dredd & Rogue Trooper. However, there was just something about Ron''s work, his attention to detail, his ability to capture the sheer lunacy of the cits that gave me an entry point into the world of Dredd, whilst Cam's genius is something that I admire in retrospect. In fact, when I hear or read the word Dredd it is Ron''s version that springs to mind.

W high is a long-winded way of saying that I didn't even have to think  about who deserves my vote on this one.

It can only be Ron Smith

I was kinda hoping the fervent and lobe stuff was ignored ah well

I'm super-pleased to see the Fervent and Lobe stuff in there! Love those characters. Will be great to see them in the Tyranny Rex volume too.

Seconded! This looks fantastic.

Mick is hands down one of the finest Artists to have ever graced the medium but my gut is telling me to go with Massive.

So it's Bellardinelli for me.

What if Disney specifically screwed ADF because they are banking on him dying soon?
There is zero chance a company with their Orwellian marketing machine doesn't know what the optics on this are like, yet they did it anyway.  One has to wonder how they thought they'd come out ahead.

I would imagine that the late Vonda McIntyre would have found her Star Wars royalties useful in her final years. Timothy Zahn isn't getting any younger either...

Mark Harrison

Get Lee Carter.

Stevie's absolute favourite comic artist of all time:

Diamond have invoiced both the 2000AD Summer SciFi Special 2020 & Meg 418 to my LCS here in South Australia for next week's shipment.

Just picked up Meg 418 from the Adelaide Comics Centre.

A single copy of the SciFi Special was listed on the shipping invoice but was not packed  in any of the boxes.

Just like d times, eh Diamond?
