My wife yesterday reading this issue: "Is this the same Bisley everyone loves, or a different guy?"
You're a dark horse, Boots.

The Bisley art reminds me of the Dredd by someone famous, with the clumpy boot that was rejected.

As in, you have to ask if it's good enough for the prog...

You're all being a bit harsh on The Biz.

He has used the looser, marker-heavy art style for at least the last 10-15 years (as far back as his occasional issue of Hellblazer if I recall).
This was never going to match his best work, even of he hadn't lost interest early on in the project (which in fairness is something I have noticed before with some of his other non-2000AD work).

Still a 2000AD hall-of-famer for me.

And I liked his cover this week too.

This? I mean it is ridiculous, but sort of fascinating at the same time

was it rejected because of the beard???   :)
